Adrianna Newell, b.1998 based in the Catskills of upstate New York, but available everywhere.

She makes photos that are almost as if you are in a different world, places you cannot pinpoint directly or images you feel like you can or want to jump into. She is inspired by the interactions, relationships, and the unique complexities within other people's identities. Through images, her goal is to evoke an emotional intimacy and a sense of nostalgia for viewers.
