Jeffrey Wolin

Wolin

More than fifteen years ago, Jeffrey Wolin decided to combine his love of words with his passion for making photographs, producing narrative images which offer the viewer a glimpse into the lives depicted. Whether pointing the camera at himself, his family or strangers, Wolin writes stories directly on his photographs, weaving narratives in and around faces, offering the viewer a more complete understanding of the person shown.

His early photographs trace his own evolution from childhood to adulthood, as we learn about the scientific experiments he did in highschool, his love of dinosaurs, the war games he used to play as a child in suburban New York, the impact of the Vietnam war, his brief career as a crime photographer and the death of his mother. In later years we witness the joys and effects of fatherhood, his interaction with families at a housing project near his home and his seminal body of work, "Written In Memory: Portraits of the Holocaust," which resulted in a book and international traveling exhibition.

Since 1996, Wolin has been taking photographs of his two sons, Ben and Andrew, as they play, fight, compete and interact. Life at the Millennium is a collaboration between Wolin and his children. While Wolin takes the photographs, his children become the author, drawing and writing directly on the prints about what they were doing in the picture or how they felt while they were posing for dad. Through these images Wolin explores the universal events all children experience; the loss of a first tooth, jumping over waves at the ocean, going to a baseball game, carving a pumpkin, making angels in the snow, riding a bicycle without training wheels and competing in sports.

Tough, vulnerable and honest, Wolin confronts the viewer with narratives few of us could dismiss. "Telling Stories: Fifteen Years of Photographs with Writing" traces Wolin's amazing ability to make us feel anger, empathy and compassion for people we only know through a portrait. His skill as both a writer and photographer is unparalleled in contemporary photography -- a testament to his innate capabilities and dedication.

Jeffrey Wolin received an NEA in 1992, as well as a 1991 Guggenheim Fellow, among other awards. His work has gained international attention and is included in numerous collections including the Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), International Museum of Photography at George Eastman House (Rochester, NY), Museum of Fine Arts (Houston, TX), Los Angeles County Museum of Art and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
