DESTROYING EVERYTHING Seems Like The Only Option.
A Few Words With :Ricky Adam
Place of Birth: Northern Ireland (12 miles outside of Belfast)
Current Residence: Leeds U.K.
@pixfeedla : Age Picked up a camera?
@rickyadam : I first discovered photography at the age of 16 after I took a few photos with my friends dads camera. I grew up with photography in my blood but frustratingly never had the money to buy a camera of my own until I turned 19, as soon as this happened that was that, I was terminally hooked.
@pixfeedla : When your not being “forced” to photograph BMX what is your favorite subject?
@rickyadam : I’ve never been ‘forced’ to take a BMX photo. I’ve always had a great love of street & documentary photography. It’s really good for me to have a few different projects going on so that if I get burnt out doing one thing, I can focus on another. If I just shot one particular thing I’d get burnt out for sure. I have a few long term projects on the boil that I like to work on when I get the time. If something genuinely interests me I’ll take a picture of it which in turn can turn into a bigger project.
@pixfeeedla : What is your favorite city in the US you have been on assignment in?
@rickyadam: I wouldn’t say that I have a favorite U.S. city. I did live on and off for a few years in Minneapolis which was a great experience and brought a whole new meaning to ‘winter’. I like a lot of cities in the U.S. they all possess different qualities.
