My Friend Thinks You're Cute.jpeg

Caff Adeus (US. 1982) is an Eritrean-American, Philadelphia based artist working in photography. Since opening his own studio in 2016 with no formal training, Adeus has evolved into an artist with his own unique signature aesthetic - dynamic, yet minimalistic, with a strong emphasis on detail. Although his artistic abilities and photographic eye are innate, Adeus has spent massive amounts of time devouring the history of not only photography, but the art world as a whole. While spending an extended amount of time in Italy, Adeus developed a strong preference for baroque paintings and sculptures, and these influences are evident in his works. Adeus understands that the body is a complex vehicle for all kinds of emotions and messages, and through both camera and post-production techniques, he creates surreal scenes that blur the lines between fine art, portraiture, and fashion photography.
