Adam Isler is a New York-born and based photographer. His photographic journey began with a Kodak Hawkeye at the age of 7 and grew serious at 12 with the purchase of a second-hand Voigtländer Vito C. At 13 he graduated to the venerable Minolta srT101 and proceeded to photograph the turbulent late 1960s and early '70s in New York with special attention to the raucous alternative antics in Central Park.
In the mid to late '70s Isler worked as an event photographer and had the opportunity to photograph such notable figures as Muhammad Ali, Prince Sihanouk, Mayor Ed Koch and Secretaries of State Elliot Richardson and Cyrus Vance. After an absence of many years he returned to photography in 1999, forsaking film for digital. Initially drawn to images of the South Jersey shore, Isler quickly returned to capturing the often unobserved minutiae of daily life on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
Recent projects include The Nature of Cities
, Transcendental Color
, the small epiphanies of Couleurs Locales
and The Burghers of Broadway
, a series of photographs of people living and working on Upper Broadway.
