Series 7 — Traveling Home Night by Adrian Galli

Project Kr, a Year in Photography, Series 7 is a trip home at night. Not worrying about sharpness, focus, and not even slowing my city-walk stride, these photographs are point of view shots of my trip home.

I’m a minimalist and very much a purist with my photography but this “shoot from the hip” photography gave me the opportunity to let go of my normal creative desires and enjoy the chaos of low shutter speeds, motion blur, missed focus, and something strange framing but also mix in my favorite high contrast, black and white photography. And a few homages to previous series.

Series 8 coming March 22nd.

Series 4 — CTA Stations by Adrian Galli

Project Kr, a Year in Photographs, and Series 4 with a focus on CTA Stations I frequently but also some I do not. Trains are integral to my life and many here in Chicago. Some are old, some are new, but all have a certain charm to them—albeit sometimes hard to find.

Series 5 coming February 20th, 2019.

Geometry at the Museum of Contemporary Photography by Adrian Galli

I’m excited to announce that some of my photography will be on loan to the Museum of Contemporary Photography for the next three years.  

My ongoing Geometry series exemplifies the unique nature of light and shadow and its interaction with characteristics of architecture shown in extremely high contrast black and white. Fifteen of my personal picks will be shared at various times with the public—specifically Chicago-centric architecture 

See Geometry here or coming soon to the Museum of Contemporary Photography.

Waves, Chicago, 2018 by Adrian Galli

While I just posted about my continuation of Geometry and how I was concerned I would run short on structures in Chicago, no sooner did inspiration hit and I took my Nikon D500 + Nikkor 70-200mm ƒ2.8G out to photography a building I’m intimately familiar with. 

A photographer colleague of mine said, “You’re doing some really impressive work. This Geometry series is like you’re taking photos and making them into graphic design.” For the record, and I always stress this because people question it always, there is no Photoshop, Illustrator, vector graphics, etc. Geometry series is minimally processed in Photos on a Mac—it’s all exposure and timing.

Photography is seeing common things differently and capturing one’s vision like no one else can.
