Jan Cook is a fine art photographer who works with alternative photography processes. Her images are a combination of photographic reality and fabrication created by using traditional darkroom techniques in unconventional ways. In this talk she will show a selection of her work including Fugue, a dreamlike series of portraits and Bright Ideas, photograms of unusual light bulbs. She will discuss her inspirations and some of the techniques she uses to create her images.
Jan lives in Portland and is originally from Seattle. She studied and worked in Mexico and this has had a big influence on her imagery. She received her BFA in photography from the University of Washington.
Recently, she has shown at Gallery 1/1 and Gallery 110 in Seattle, was published in Diffusion Magazine, received a Regional Arts and Council Professional Development Grant and was a Critical Mass finalist in 2017. You can see some of her work at www.jancook.com
