Jeffrey Krolick: Elemental Neighborhood
Jeffrey Krolick earned an MFA in sculpture from the SUNY Buffalo and worked for many years as a jeweler, metalsmith and sculptor, exploring how composition can unify disparate materials and seemingly contradictory conceptual themes. Photography has been his preferred medium for the past 20 years to discover/uncover these relationships in the seemingly mundane scenes of everyday life and the natural world. Jeff's work has been recognized with awards from the Silver Eye Center for Photography, the Society for Contemporary Photography and the International Photography Awards which selected him as Fine Art Photographer of the Year in 2005 and nominated him for a prestigious Lucie award. He was the recipient of an Oregon Arts Commission Fellowship in 2008. Jeff's work is included in Jen Bekman's 20x200 Project and the Center for Fine Art Photography's Portfolio Showcase v1. Jeff lives in Ashland, Oregon with his wife.
