                      So my mind sinks in this immensity:
                        And foundering is sweet in such a sea.


                                    L'infinito, Giacomo Leopardi
                                                    Trans. J. Galassi



Adrienne Defendi is an artist whose work explores family narratives,
changing perspectives, and the fragility of life.  Her life-long interests
in memory and myth, narrative and nostalgia, inform and contextualize
her photographic expression.  She lives and works in the San Francisco
Bay Area.
A member of the Bay Area Photographers Collective for seventeen years,
Adrienne has exhibited her work nationally and internationally. Her work
has been included in many juried exhibitions, including shows at RayKo
Photo Gallery, Berkeley Art Center, SFMOMA Artist’s Gallery in Fort Mason,
Triton Museum of Art, the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel, Cordon
Potts Gallery in San Francisco, Marin Museum of Contemporary, and SOHO
Photo, NYC.  She has exhibited her work internationally at the Czong
Contemporary Art Institute (CICA), South Korea, in the Photo Yokohama
Festival, Japan, and in the PH1 Contemporary Photography Gallery in
Hungary.  A 2015 Critical Mass finalist, her work has been featured in the
publications LensWork, Seeing in SIXES, Don’t Smile, Shots, Light Leaks,
and B&W Magazine, as well as online in “LenScratch,” “Your Daily Photograph,”
“Don’t Take Pictures,” and “All About Photo.”
