Hailing from New York and raised in America’s Midwest, lifestyle and portrait photographer Douglas Adesko has always had a fascination for humans.
Growing up, baseball cards were his first obsession. Then came album covers and music magazines. Later on, he discovered documentary photography, but his interest came from the same place – a deep curiosity about other people.
Today, Douglas’ desire to share something of the human experience remains the driving force behind his photography. From environmental family and workplace portraits to dynamic lifestyle brand imagery, his work is underlined by a desire to forge connections with his subjects.
Use of naturalistic light and striking colour palettes, along with a gift for engendering unselfconsciousness in his subjects, makes Douglas’ work come alive with a documentary-like realism.
