Born in 1967, Adam Nadel works at the intersections of art, journalism, science, and human rights.
Works in Progress marks the mid-point of two projects in development: examining the landscape of human intervention and investigating civil rights in Queens, NY.
These landscapes from the Southwest document how humans are changing our physical landscape and how this reordering reflects our cultures needs and desires. The portraits are the first steps in documenting how flaws in our criminal legal system affect the lives of Queens residents. While seemingly unconnected, these projects both document the impact and power of our societal choices and priorities upon individuals and our environment.
The Queens-based work was made possible in part by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
