In a departure from the traditional narrative of the mythical tree of knowledge, Caff Adeus presents a powerful commentary in his series, Forbidden Fruit. Rather than portraying the fruit of temptation, the aerialist in the series represent the different forms of artistic expression that are too often out of reach, or otherwise unavailable, due to arts education program cut backs in our communities. The arts are essential to a thriving society, yet somehow they are considered expendable. As a product of the arts world, Caff Adeus hopes this collection of photographs inspire, captivate, and motivate individuals, parents, and policy makers to take action to keep the arts alive and accessible to all.
