Adler's photographs are shot from her own drawings. In the 1990s, she developed a translation process, from photography to drawing back to photography. The final product, a unique photographic print of the drawing, became the original. The original drawings for the photographs, were destroyed. This is to be understood as a production process that puts the notions of authenticity and original in question and expanded.

In 2006, Adler inverted this process and now displays the original drawings, but always in relation to the intervention of media. For example, in her oil pastel drawings entitled, Location, from 2014, she uses location shots as source material for her drawings. In her drawings and photographs, Amy Adler has always worked intensively with the medium of film. During her study of Cinematic Arts at USC from 2009–2012 she began making her own films. In 2012 she directed the 26-minute documentary Mein Schloss, and in 2016 she directed the 15 minute fiction film, Tear Jerker.
