Adam Hinton began his photographic career at the age of 12 when his father bought him a basic SLR camera. He became fascinated with a new way of looking at the world and the ability to record things of importance. When he was 15, he received his first installment of compensation from the Government following a knife attack (his attacker had a thing against punks) and instinctively knew what he was going to spend the money on - more lenses. When he received the rest of the money at 18, he spent it all on a set of professional cameras and lenses.From that moment onwards, photography was a constant focus and enabled Adam to vocalize his other interest - politics. Studying photojournalism in the `80s enabled him to articulated his feelings, beliefs and values into a visual medium that he could communicate to others, and he would take photos at all the demonstrations he went to. Adam hoes that his images portray something of the way we live today, how each action has a reaction, and that nothing is without cause or response.
