You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
―Ansel Adams
 

* The Art of Photography *

In 1826, the world was introduced to the first photograph. Taken by a retired Frenchman, Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, View from a Window is a grainy image consisting of black and white geometric shapes that vaguely resemble rooftops. When Mr. Niépce captured this infamous image with the first pinhole camera, he couldn’t have imagined the influence he would have on the world.

Nearly 200 hundred years later, the photograph has become an important form of expression, not just on a personal level, but on national and global levels as well. Because of Mr. Niépce’s incredible invention, we have experienced the breath-taking landscapes of Ansel Adams, the economic portrayals of Dorothea Lange, the frontline action of Robert Capa, and the controversial artistry of Sally Mann.

Each photographer contributes something different to the art of photography, and it is my mission to do the same. My exploration into the world of photography has taken, and will continue to take, many twists and turns, but regardless of the direction I am headed, it is my goal to capture the beauty of the world, and offer everlasting images.

Sincerely,
Jessica L.
