The Age Maps of Bobby Neel Adams


Click any image for larger view.



Bobby Neel Adams was born in Black Mountain, NC, a magical place as the former home to the Bauhaus. Working without the aid of digital imaging, and by tearing and gluing the pictures, he creates what he calls “Age Maps,” the kind of thing forensic artists might use to discover what someone might look like who has not been seen for some time. It’s an interesting concept.

Adam’s work is held in the collections of ICP (International Center for Photography), the Houston Museum of Fine Art, the Norton Family Foundation, the USB Collection, DiRosa Ranch and the Greenville Museum of Art.

Back in the '80s, I played with torn paper portraits like this of husbands and wives and it was disturbing how much they often look alike.
