Rhiannon Adam was born in Co. Cork, Ireland and currently lives and works in London. She was educated at Central Saint Martins college of Art and Design (London), and at the University of Cambridge.
Rhiannon's work is primarily concerned with time, uniqueness, and place told though the degradation and physicality of instant film materials.

Rhiannon also curates exhibitions, being resident curator of Gallery One and a Half in London, and collaborates with artists wishing to develop their projects for exhibition. Past projects have included Laura Pannack's Young British Naturists (Gallery One and a Half, and White cloth), Robert Wilson's Helmand Return (50 poster site billboard exhibition supported by Arts council England, and show at Gallery One and a Half), Helmand (Southbank Centre roof), Marc Hagan-Guirey's Horrorgami, Behind Bars (collective exhibition of prison photography at Gallery One and a Half).
Her work has been published and exhibited internationally. She released her first book, 'Dreamlands / Wastelands' in 2014, and has been recently featured in the New York Times, Le Monde and Vice magazines.
