LINDA JACOBS PHOTOGRAPHY



ARTIST STATEMENT

When I see light illuminating a building or a stairway, sneaking in from the side, articulating the texture of a wall, or highlighting a detail, I feel the urge to reach out and touch it. By capturing the movement of light and making it tangible, I seek to preserve the instant of visual delight.

I am pulled in by the imprint of the human species, the interaction of the buildings around us with nature, and the artistic process – these things attract me. Others may capture the untouched landscape….my eye is drawn to the built environment and its inhabitants, expressed in color, pattern, light and shadow.


ABOUT ME

Born in White Plains, New York, I received a Bachelor of Science in Design and Environmental Analysis from Cornell University, and reside in Maplewood, New Jersey. I am a Design Manager at a New York architectural firm, specializing in architectural interiors.

An early interest in photography led me to document my professional work over the years. In 2009, I decided to pursue photography as an art form. My photographic work is digital, except the “Photograms” series, which combine my interest in pattern, texture, materials and the magic of the darkroom.
