Adam Robert Young is a photographer who specialises in social documentary, photojournalism and street photography.
As a visual storyteller, Young is particularly drawn to the tales of those on the outer, the marginalised and those who otherwise may never have a voice to tell others of their plight. That is not to say he doesn't enjoy sharing stories of hope and triumph as well. Whatever the story, however, Adam's images are characterised by their aesthetic appeal and the sense of empathy that permeates them.
In 2014, Young released his first photographic book Saigon Panorama, with 146 pages of stunning panoramic images capturing scenes from Ho Chi Minh City (refer to the Saigon Panorama menu page on this website).
With over a decade of teaching experience, Young also delivers tuition and conducts the occasional photography workshop in Australia and overseas.
Young completed a Master of Arts in Visual Arts in 2017, and is currently undertaking a PhD at the Queensland College of Art.
