nature/nurture by jennifer shaw

This Sunday, as it’s becoming usual, we have something special for all of you: the works of photographer Jennifer Shaw, who is currently based in New Orleans, Louisiana, where she also teaches photography. Her pieces are often exhibited in various galleries and museums, and are truly sought after, being constantly present in different collections, like at the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. We have been absolutely drawn into her intimate and restful style, hence we recommend checking her website to discover what we consider to be very interesting explorations in the field of photography. Today we center our attention on her series of work entitled Nature/Nurture; a study that, as the artist has explained, focuses in the tiny elements that constitute the landscape, either domesticated or wild, and in the creatures that are both living and “resting”. The artist used a modified plastic camera to capture these images, shooting from her waist-height, zooming into details, textures and experimenting with light. Shaw has affirmed that these intimate depictions of flora and fauna serve her as a personal catalog of natural wonders.
