Adrien Broom is a self-taught photographer with a penchant for the bizarre and beautiful. Through a cinematographic approach to photography, Broom creates illusions that play between reality, emphasizing the imaginative impulse. Her images are densely narrative, exploring universal themes of childhood, loss and the anxiety of modern life through these constructed scenes.
Adrien was recently featured in the prestigious "American Dreamers" Exhibit at the Palazzo Strozzi Museum in Florence Italy. The Exhibition comprises a reflection on the work of artists who use fantasy, imagination and dreams to build alternative worlds to the increasingly complex reality of our world. She graduated in 2002 in Computer Animation and in 2006 she lived in Florence, studying at the SACI University, and in London, where she studied in Fine and Decorative Art History at Christie's. These experiences exposed her to works that continue to influence the structure, composition, and painterly quality she tries to achieve in her work. She is greatly influenced by artists such as John Singer Sargent, Caravaggio and Gregory Crewdson.
