#CARVENSEENBY Adam Goodison

For its Advent Calendar, Carven gave carte blanche to 20 artists, each of whom was asked to revisit a key item in the 2018 cruise collection. To revisit his chain bracelet, Serge Ruffieux commissioned the artist Adam Goodison, whose work reinvents still-life photography. Who are you ?
I am 32 years old, I am an art and still-life photographer. I live in London. I come from a working class family in Northern England and I was raised in the countryside, which contributed to shape my gaze on the beauty of nature. I was trained in photography with Nick Knight, with whom I perfected my technique before starting on my own. German Romanticism, and especially the works of Caspar David Friedrich and Hercules Seghers have influenced my photographic aesthetics and the way I build an image.
What does this pre-Christmas period mean to you ?
Rest, or rather the prospect of having time to relax. This is one of the few times during the year that I can really take the time to get away from work and focus on the fun of spending time with friends and family. It is also a period that symbolizes change, new beginnings, and new collaborations. We leave the past behind and we only care about what will happen.
What would be your ultimate artistic dream for the year 2018 ?
I dream of new challenges. I like meeting new creative people and discussing ideas and concepts we could work on together. I like being stimulated to get closer to perfection.
