Adam Marelli is a NYC based artist and photographer whose work focuses on the ancient crafts of building, craftsmen in their workshops, and designs handed down through generations.[1] His artistic approach consists of photography, putting the experience first and the camera second. Adam’s projects combine exploration, documentation, and an eye for cultural sensitivity.[2] Adam is also a featured "image maker" at the international Center for Photography (ICP)[3] and is also known for being a Leica Akademie Featured Photographer Teacher in New York City.[1] In 2014 he was recognized for his “The Bear in the Canal” image, which won a 2014 International Photography Award Honorable Mention in the Deeper Perspective category.[1] Invisible-Exports gallery represents his work in New York City.[1]

Early Years

Adam Marelli was born and raised in Florham Park New Jersey, but moved to New York City in the late '90s to pursue art and an interest in architecture.[4] While living in the East Village, Marelli completed a double major in Sculpture and Photography at New York University.[4]

Education

Adam Marelli obtained a BS degree in Sculpture & Photography in 2002. After graduating from New York University, he developed his skills as a sculptor with a 10 year apprenticeship in construction, and also underwent 7 years of study with Zen Monks during this time.[3] During this ten year period, Adam also specialized in high-end residential projects in some of New York City's most famous addresses.[2]

Notable Projects

Adam Marelli’s “South Pacific” project combines cultural photography and exploration. He was the first photographer to be invited by the chiefs of the Naihne tribe on the island of Tanna (Vanuatu) to document their building and spiritual techniques.[5]

Adam’s “Japan” project was a three year endeavor called “Lost Ceremony” and was supported by the Japanese government. The project looked at master craftsmen as an endangered species. Adam worked inside of the most notable and historic workshops, some dating back over 16 generations.[5]

Adam’s “Italy” project was a two-part series. The first project opened the doors of the last gondola makers in Venice, Italy. This particular community has been known to be weary of outsiders and foreigners, so Adam learned Italian in attempt to earn the trust and support of the boat makers as he worked inside of their world.[5]
