In conjunction with PhotoNOLA, 1303 Decatur presents a two-person exhibition featuring the most recent work of Jennifer Brunjes and Joseph P. Walton. Jennifer and Joseph employ modern photographic processes, along with methods and techniques up to 170 years old. The subject of the work explores personal reflections as musings. This show elicits a visual tug of war. Joseph’s use of modern photographic techniques against Jennifer’s use of 19th century processes.
Jennifer Brunjes, a multidisciplinary artist with a focus on alternative process photography. Her work utilizes 19th Century techniques—cyanotype, gum bichromate, and salt print—in handmade reclaimed wood frames. Themes and inspirations are drawn from folk tales around the fire, mysticism at midnight, pre-dawn frost and post-dusk thunderstorms.
Jennifer holds a degree in Fine Arts from Hofstra University. She resides in New Orleans, and her work is from far ranging regions.
