Linda McAdams, a resident of Moorestown, works in a process that results in a print that is something between a photograph and a painting, and what she refers to as “Painterly Photography”.

According to  McAdams: “After shooting my image with an older format Polaroid bellows camera, I place the image on a heated ceramic tile, then use burnishing tools, metal and wood points, and various other instruments to move the emulsion of the photograph around while it is in the developing process. I will sometimes freeze and re-heat the image during alteration. I often paint on the original or on the enlargement using French oil pastels, watercolor, photographic inks, etc. I store my original on 4 x 5 copy negatives, and use a variety of reproduction techniques.”

Her unique work has been sought after by collectors and has been exhibited extensively in the New Jersey region.  In addition to her passion for photography, Linda is also a dedicated singer and songwriter.
