As a Philadelphia commercial and editorial photographer who also maintains a fine arts practice, I make a point to keep current with the art world. I am photographing an on-going portrait and documentary project with artists in their studio spaces.
While many are visual artists, I also pull in others from differing creative fields – musicians, wood-workers, writers, tailors, etc. The project is rooted in portraiture. However, I’m equally as interested in profiling and documenting the artistic and tactile processes behind the work. In addition to portraiture, I photograph the artist working. This can either be in the studio if their practice is studio-based, or on location if their work requires it.
This is Kimberly Schneider. I met Kimberly at an event held by The Photo Review, a journal of fine art photography that is based in the Philadelphia area, and we also attended the Filter Photo Fest portfolio reviews in Chicago together as well. She is a New York photographer, working exclusively with infrared large format film. These were photographed in her home darkroom, where she prints all her own work for exhibition and sale.
