About the Image
For this image I used plastic swizzle sticks, saved from cocktails in San Miguel, to evoke poles in the rising gulf.
Jennifer Shaw is fine art photographer whose work encompasses both a world observed and a world constructed. Known for her playful approach to serious subjects, she is currently experimenting with photogravure. Her images have been published in two monographs: Hurricane Story (Chin Music Press), and Nature/Nurture (North Light Press).
Shaw grew up in Milwaukee, studied photography at the Rhode Island School of Design, then moved to New Orleans in pursuit of the artist’s life. Her work is held in collections including the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Ogden Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. In 2020, Shaw was one of three finalists for the 1858 Prize, and in 2021 she was selected for Critical Mass Top 50.
