A personal and focused look into the original art photography of Adam Zaliouk.
Images are best described as creative, romantic, versatile, unique, and really do stand out as one of a kind.
Born in England, raised in the USA, and currently living in the "Holy Land", Adam is son to a Symphony Conductor and a ballerina. This opened the artistic doors making it possible for Adam to meet famous musicians and artists, as well as travel. As a result of Adam's childhood, he believes that opportunity and interest was ignited from his parents instilling a culture of fine art in his life.
"Growing up and in school, no subject shone brighter or interested me more than the subject of art in general".
After graduating from high school, Adam attended culinary school, when it was there that he realized he preferred to photograph the beautiful dishes than create them. Cooking remains a passion of his, as well as any subject that is visually beautiful in his eye.
"I think that I shifted my attention toward painting and photography even before I realized it late into my twenty's. I always had a camera growing up, and I found the ability to record a moment or beautiful image instantly, appealing and satisfying".
Photography began to stand out as his true talent and gift. "I knew that I was on the right track when friends and family would ask me to photograph them". I love to give to people, so making people happy through taking a good complementary photo of them is pleasing and rewarding. Having people see the world through my eye, and in return provoking a feeling, thought, or emotion is true fun. I get a real kick out of introducing a new and different way to look at a subject, something that may have gone unnoticed otherwise".
Adam's photography really does cover a wide range of subjects including, travel, profile and portrait, city life, still life, nature, abstract and design. Like frozen moments in time, many times Adam's images can appear to resemble paintings in character.
Often times people will tell me, "oh, you should paint that", but I don't do so for fear of distracting importance or focus from the original art form. I have many original ideas for paintings waiting to come out, ones that can be reflected through paint on canvas".
Adam's photography, together with some of his paintings can be seen on the Internet at www.azartisticimages.com
Currently, Adam's "Morocco Collection" of photography is being displayed in Israel.
Adam works mostly on commission, and is available for both private and professional projects.
