Between 1987 and 2007 the Artist produced and published 50 Certified Limited Editions and sold over
2,200 of these high quality, Cibachrome permanent Azo dye, reproductions of his own originals to the
Japanese market alone. Each of these beautiful prints changed hands several times after they were
purchased from the Artist and were then sold for world record prices: Between $4,000.00 - $6,000.00
each. Since Loren Adams originally opened the first Cibachrome lab with Duncan McDougall F.R.P.S
(Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain) in Vancouver, B.C. Canada in 1974, and
had pioneered the use of this Ciba Geigi Pharmacutical product *Cibachrome for Ilford, as a Fine Art
archival print method; many other Artists had paved the way for dealers in Japan to desire to purchase
prints from their teacher: Loren Adams. During the 14 year period of time between 1989 - 2003 his
popularity in Japan was at an all time high as well as other countries of the world.

Today his beautiful original oils & Limited editions are in Museums & important collections world-wide. Not content to rest on his laurels, he continues to extend the borders of his creative excellence, always searching for a finer expression of his ideals.
His love of music has many times caused him to consider a career as a concert pianist, instead the Art and music have combined to create a deeper resonance and add a richer colour to both.
