"There are always two people in every picture:  the photographer and the viewer”.

 -Ansel Adams

 

Form changes from moment to moment and by shifting the camera one little bit, you create something different.  It becomes a visual experience that is different for everyone.  I believe a successful image is one that shows something you see everyday or something that you have never seen before but resonates emotionally deep inside

of us.

 

Jan has taken photography courses at The New School, Queensborough Community College, and Molloy College, and especially enjoys the creativity of the digital darkroom.  She is a member of the Manhasset/Great Neck Camera Club, Photo Artists’ Network, The Long Island Center of Photography and is a PFLI judge.

 

She has won numerous awards and her work has been widely exhibited on Long Island.  Jan also won a Merit Award and was published in Black and White Magazine and in Paumanok II Interwoven, an anthology of poetry and photography by Long Islanders.
