About Adam

My family moved to Ghana in 1987 and in 1999 to South Africa. My interest in photography began at the age of eleven after reading a copy of the Ghanaian tabloid newspaper P&P that featured local photographic accounts of ghosts, spirits and witchcraft.

It was the same year Wilkinson came across his family's photo album in which a recurring and unknown figure appeared in pictures of his birthday parties, Christmas dinners and family trips. His first group show was at the Hangar Gallery in Santa Monica where he exhibited Cinema Abokobi.

I have knowledge and an appreciation of the history of the medium. I have a BFA in photography and my work was exhibited in two group shows during my studies in Paris.

Wilkinson cites the work of Joan Fontcuberta, Pere Formuigera, Mike Mandel and Larry Sultan as a major influence.
