Jennifer Pinto Artist Statement:
My mother is a fine artist and my father used to work as a cartographer, so I suppose it is no surprise that I am a graphic designer & amateur photographer. Incorporating some parts of each of them. I have a love for color and composition, as well as a knack for layout and design. I also enjoy the technical side of graphic design, such as working with the computer and all the cool software programs, not to mention the love I have for my camera! In my time working for Time Life Books I had the privilege to handle and work with many famous photographs. It was truly an education in compelling photography. That experience inspires me to this day!
My favorite artistic endeavor is to manipulate my photos in some way. I call the final product an “Impressionist Photograph”. Some works are digital paintings or drawings, and some; I like just the way they are as a straight photo. It is just that I see in so many of my photographs the potential for more.
