Adam Leitzel is a visual based artist who deals primarily with themes of peoples relationship to place, and peoples relationships with each other. His time growing up in a small, well connected community in rural Pennsylvania has sparked his interest in these themes of interconnectedness. When you grow up in a small community, you know the business owners, city officials, you see the teachers on the weekends, everyone knows everyone organically. This is an interesting juxtaposition against social media. The town serves as a micro version of what is going on in the world at a macro scale.
Adam will be graduating in 2020 from the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design. After that, he wishes to pursue an MFA degree in photography. He aspires to create and exhibit his photographic work in conjunction with teaching on a collegiate level.
