Adair Freeman Rutledge is a photographic artist based in Seattle, WA. Originally from small town Alabama, her photography work often questions enduring traditions and underscores tensions between cultural practices and modern realities. Through a curious and feminist lens, she explores how American customs influence expectations for our youth, shape gender roles, and impact racial stereotypes. Adair’s photography has been commissioned by brands like Amazon, John Deere, Brooks Running, and Lands’ End. Her fine art work has been featured on NPR, Fraction Magazine, and Lenscratch, and is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Seattle Art Museum’s 2019 Betty Bowen Award (finalist) and CENTER Santa Fe’s Editor’s Choice Award.
