An Except From The Conversation Continues
By Sue Scott
SS: I want to ask about Adam Fuss, because he’s been around for a long time, yet he’s a relatively new addition to your collection and now you have 4 or 5 works.
JC: We met Adam when he was a neighbor at the beach. We started to go to his studio and watch him making photographs and working with the snakes, and the butterflies and the pansies. And so one day he tells us he has this great early piece from his first show at Massimo Adielo. He didn’t really want to sell it, but he did and we bought this little piece from a series called In Between. It’s an egg and feathers, and it was just so simple and so wonderful.
SS: Adam is an interesting non-photographer photographer. He started using a pinhole camera and then moved on to placing objects on photographic paper he exposed to colored lights. The result was an amazing abstraction of color and light, but you could still make out the object, whether it was snakes, pansies or bunny guts.
JC: One summer he offered a portrait at our beach community fundraiser. We went for our photograph together and he said do you want it nude or just the upper body part…we took the upper body part.
