Adrienne Cook grew up in Burke, Virginia and has been traveling far and wide creating stunning images. Some of her travels have taken her across the US, Italy and Egypt.
Adrienne studied at Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. and has taken classes at the Smithsonian in Washington DC. She also had the amazing opportunity to travel to Luxor, Egypt, in order to volunteer with the excavation and photographing of the Tomb of Karakhamun from the 25th dynasty.
Currently, Adrienne is located in Northern Virginia, where she is building her photography business, so she can sell and focus on her photography full time.
I chose the phrase “Appreciate Your Surroundings” to represent my body of work because that’s exactly what I am doing when creating my images. Photography is a passion of mine and has been for many years. It's an outlet for me to release all stresses and become centered again. So many people go through life with blinders on, obsessed with their electronics and completing their daily routines like robots. By the time they look up so much has passed by, whether it be time, life or beautiful surroundings.
My desire is to draw the viewer in with my unique compositions and subjects, in hopes that the viewer feels relaxed and intrigued by the images I have created. I would like for them to use their imagination, come up with their own story or scenario of how or why the image was taken and enjoy.
