Project info

Adam Bernard’s endeavor, entitled “Project Belvedere”, ("Belvedere" means "Beautiful View" in Italian) is an ongoing photographic mission that has the sole objective of capturing elements of beauty about the wide-ranging entities that are present among the land and scenery within the urban, suburban and rural areas of the ordinary world. Out of reverence for the documentary and street photographers of the 20th century, Bernard, a Gen Xer, operates his digital camera in a traditional manner when photographing. He controls his camera and treats it as if it were loaded with a roll of Kodachrome 35mm slide film. Bernard’s photographs are composed using the illumination, space, time, surface and color of our planet.
