Adrienne Pao is a Photographer based in San Francisco, California. She is currently investigating two photographically based projects. Hawaiian Family Portraits examines how Hawaiian fantasy influences identity in members of Hawaiian contemporary culture. She is also working on a collaborative project with artist Robin Lasser, Dress Tents, wearable sculptures which are photographed in the landscape that playfully look at female representation in the 21st century. Both projects investigate notions of tourism in real and simulated fantasy landscapes, and involve a combination of performative and staged scenarios.

Her work has been featured in the Portfolio Issue 77 of Shots magazine (2004), the Exposure journal (2006), Flaunt magazine (2006), Top (Brazil) magazine (2006), Playboy (South America) (2006), Marie Claire magazine (Taiwan) (2007), Dazed and Confused (England) (2008) and writer/art critic Rebecca Solnit’s book Storming the Gates of Paradise: Landscapes for Politics (2007). She has shown her work nationally and internationally at Wave Hill Glyndor Gallery in the Bronx, New York City, the Balcony Gallery in Kailua, Hawai’i, the Museum of African Diaspora in San Francisco, California, Recoleta Cultural Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Caixa Cultural in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

She was a 2005 Society for Photographic Education award winner, and received a 2005 Visual Artist Fellowship through the College Art Association. She is currently part time faculty at the Academy of Art University. Adrienne received her MFA in Photography from San Jose State University in 2005.
