Freelance photographer Adam Moco first discovered his passion for the craft as a model working and traveling throughout Asia and Europe. Upon returning to his native Canada, he decided to study the art form and enrolled in the Creative Photography program at Toronto’s Humber College, where he graduated in 2010. Shortly after, he built on the skills acquired through the program with a coveted internship at Flare Magazine. He further polished his tools as in-house photographer for Holt Renfrew and their online magazines Holts Muse and Holts Men, a position he held for four years.
Moco’s deep love for travel, endless pursuit of self-discovery and innate desire to explore human connection are the driving forces behind his photography.
Tryst Pic, Moco’s ongoing portrait series, links him to men around the world through the use of location-based hookup apps. He relies on these apps to meet men in a non-sexual context, visit them in their own spaces, and photograph them in an honest and intimate fashion. The encounters breed bonds he sustains while the portraits offer an insightful look at the vast and varied queer men around the globe.
His latest photographic endeavour, Bare, flourished out of Tryst Pic and takes an unfiltered, uninhibited perspective on the beauty and vulnerability that is the male body.
Moco currently resides in Lisbon, Portugal.
