Collector’s Choice: Jessica Jenney

About Jessica Jenney

Jessica Jenney photographs the natural world with an emphasis on intimate landscapes with a romantic flair. The idyllic beauty of Jessica Jenney’s ethereal floral and landscape images transcends time and place. Jessica’s painterly treatment of her photographs creates tranquil and bucolic scenes reminiscent of the Romantic era painters.

In sharp contrast to her nature photography, her latest passion is capturing New York City and it’s architecture, in monochromatic tones and warm golden hues.

Above, you see her photograph of the Flatiron Building with its distinctive triangular shape, designed by Chicago architect Daniel Burnham and built in 1902. It was allowed it to fill the wedge-shaped property located at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Broadway. The building was intended to serve as offices for the George A. Fuller Company, a major Chicago contracting firm. At 22 stories and 307 feet, the Flatiron was never the city’s tallest building, but always one of its most dramatic-looking, and its popularity with photographers and artists has made it an enduring symbol of New York for more than a century.

Jessica Jenney’s black and white photographs of New York City’ s architecture present a haunting beauty of this grand city with all of its beautiful buildings and feats of engineering. In contrast, her floral photographs present bold to soft colored delicate petals and stamens, all with exquisite contrast, detail and texture. The unified vision of the artist remains constant throughout both groups of works through its implication of a Romantic perspective built upon the capture of grand movements, bold to subtle textures, dramatic perspectives and viewpoints and through the use of rich contrast. With her sensitive eye to detail, Jenny successfully and compellingly captures the heart and soul of the natural as well as the human-made world.
