My work has always been exploratory in technique. At times I have incorporated both traditional and non-traditional photographic methods, as well as, utilizing hand-rendered imagery via drawing, collage or other multi-media applications of artists pigments. All of my current work involves digital photography which often is then intentionally altered or manipulated with several different software applications into a quite different version of the original image. My images often blur the line between fact and fiction—and I have found the medium of photography particularly well suited for pursuing that realm in a visual context. I strive to weave together elements of our tangible external physical landscape that we inhabit with our less tangible but equally as relevant internal psychological landscape. The realm of dreams—both conscious and subconscious— has always fascinated me and often figures into the imagery I create. Most of all, it is the ongoing, cumulative process of acquiring and absorbing experiences in our world–trying to understand our connection to it and to one another–that inspires much of my artwork. I received my BFA in photography from Austin Peay State University in TN in 1988. I had a successful career in illustration and graphic design in Nashville, TN for a dozen years bef
ore I migrated to another professional pursuit. I recently retired from a 30 year career in healthcare management and have returned to my creative art career. This year alone I have had new work accepted into and shown in over twenty highly competitive juried exhibitions across the US and Canada. I have works in private, public and corporate collections.

I was born in New York City and I continue to live and work here. I am a photographer and I am also an abstract painter. I work in both genres which keep my concepts and ideas fresh. Color is very important to my work and I use as much of it as I can. I started off as a professional photographer and years later I stated abstract painting. The photography and painting are as different as they can be but working in both mediums is very enjoyable.

David Reinfeld picked up a camera as a teenager; it was the ’60-s in New York
City. He was a street photographer, taking pictures and protesting. In the early ’70-s, as a graduate student at the Rhode Island School of Design, David had the
great privilege of studying with his heroes from the history of photography.
Their classes were his introduction to the world of art, and their teachings
remain a fundamental part of the way he sees. Under their influence, he became
an abstract artist. He photographed graffiti and decayed walls anywhere he
could find them, including ten years in the Utah canyons. His world changed in
2011, discovering composite photography; making a photograph was no longe tied to snapping the shutter button. Today David is more of a hybrid artist,
making images wherever he goes and following whatever feels important.
Jenna Mulhall-Brereton is a both a photographer and a professional in the philanthropy sector.
The two images included in this exhibition are part of an ongoing project, How the light gets in, that Jenna began with the inception of stay-at-home orders arising from the Covid-19 pandemic. Jenna, a documentary photographer, was in the midst of long-term street shooting projects on cultural festivals in both the US and Mexico when the pandemic began. With every aspect of those projects put on hold—no festivals, no travel, no street shooting, and certainly no close work with a 28 mm lens, it was necessary to find a new photography project—and a new way of looking at the world.
The resulting series, How the light gets in, is an exploration of the way light travels across the artist’s home. Spending most of her time there for the past several months has allowed for new discoveries, such as the way certain corners hold the sun for only moments each day. The project has, of course, also been an exercise in choosing to actively seek light in the midst of these challenging times.
Jenna has been fortunate to learn from master printmaker Chuck Kelton and from extraordinary photographers over the past two decades, including Maggie Steber, Peter Turnley, Ron Haviv, and Chris Rainier. She is especially grateful to have been able to call Mary Ellen Mark both mentor and friend—as well as an enduring inspiration.
Her photographs have appeared in exhibitions throughout the US and in a variety of publications, including the book published by Aperture: Mary Ellen Mark on the Portrait and the Moment.
