In his capacity as a photographic educator and mentor, Adrian focuses primarily on youth related and intergenerational projects.

His work focuses on participatory projects that encourage young people to use photography as a new way of seeing by using the camera to reexamine their own environment and themselves in relation to their communities, society and the wider world. The camera is a tool for investigating the lines between their current realities and their future potential.

In recent years Adrian has worked on a number of successful projects -- including exhibitions at the V&A’s Museum of Childhood, public displays and youth led magazine projects. He has worked with organizations including The Refugee Council, Dulwich Picture Gallery, Lambeth Youth Offending Team, and numerous schools in boroughs in and around London.
