Adrian Fisk

Adrian Fisk’s work has featured in the world’s top current-affairs periodicals, from National Geographic and the Financial Times Weekend Magazine to Vanity Fair, Stern, Vogue, Colors magazine and The Economist. In 2007 he was identified as one of ‘The World’s Top Photographers’ in the book published by Rotovision. His work has been exhibited internationally including the 2016 show at the East Wing Biennial at the Courtauld Institute of Art and the Saatchi gallery in 2019 which showcased his photography and a video installation commissioned by the gallery. He was born in 1970 and grew up in Devon, the UK. After graduating with a degree in photography he moved to London where he spent the next five years documenting youth counter-culture against the 1990s socio-political backdrop of environmental protests, illegal raves and anti-globalization. He went on to work for top advertising, design and PR agencies including BBH, Saatchi & Saatchi, JWT and Weber Shandwick for clients including Nikon, Vodafone and other major international brands. He lived in India from 2003 - 2011, where his work provided anthropological and political visual analysis of South Asia during a unique period of growth. His 'iSpeakChina' series, seen by more than 18 million people, reflected what Chinese youth thought about life. Fisk is currently working on his first feature length documentary about a team of researchers exploring what needs to be put in place to allow indigenous and local Arctic communities a just, resilient and sustainable existence in the face of dramatic climate change in the polar North. The film, commissioned by the European Commission and JustNorth will be filmed, edited and produced by Fisk completing in 2023. Beyond this he continues to create compelling short films and photography for companies, charities and innovators that work to transform society. This theme of transformation is further explored in his ongoing contemporary photographic work that documents healing and self transformation through the use of the psychedelic plant medicine.
