Adrienne Moumin: Hand Printed Silver Gelatin Photographs and Unique Photo Collages

Born in 1961 in Brooklyn, NY, I am best known for my hand-cut-and-assembled gelatin silver photo collages, and for the B&W photographs from which they are
made.

I am a self-taught collage artist, and created my first
work at 8 years old, a bookcase covered with meticulously cut and pasted magazine pictures.

In 1999, I graduated from SUNY Empire State College with a B.A. in Documentary Visual Studies and Society,
a self-styled major which combines my love of photography and commentary.

In the early 2000’s I began cutting up my gelatin silver photographs for use in collage, in order to carry on
with my work during a period when I had no access to
a darkroom. This led to my ongoing Architextures series of hand-cut-and-assembled photo collages.

I have exhibited my gelatin silver photographs and collages in New York, and nationwide, for over twenty years.

In 2021 and 2016, I was awarded Individual Artist grants from the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County (MD), for the creation of several large-scale photo collages. I also received a 2021 Independent Artist Award from the Maryland State Arts Council.

I recently worked as part of a 3-artist team, on the newly-installed “Meet Me at The Triangles” public art installation in downtown Wheaton, MD.

My images have been featured in New York Gallery Guide, Hyperallergic.com, About.com, and the Sun Magazine. I have been profiled and interviewed for numerous publications and media outlets, including Hyperallergic.com, WBAI Radio in New York, and I have taught and consulted in a variety of photographic settings.

My photographs and collages are in public and private collections in the US and abroad.

I live and work in New York and Silver Spring, MD.
