Some people are comfortable photographing what they know. Other people search among the unknown, convinced every corner will reveal a new discovery. Jed Fielding is one of those photographers who seeks his subjects on the concrete streets and alleyways of Naples and Mexico City, revealing situations and faces that populate urban areas. Along the way, people gesticulate and flirt, showing defiance, playfulness and resilience, revealing glimpses of themselves frozen by Fielding's camera. The resulting images are both humorous and poignant, as adults and children allow us to enter their worlds.....if only for a moment.

Jed Fielding's work can be seen in his recent 2009 monograph, Look at Me (University of Chicago Press) and in his 1997 book, City of Secrets (Takarajima Books). His work has been exhibited internationally and is included in numerous collections including The Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University (Cambridge, MA) and The International Center of Photography (New York, NY) among others. He received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1975 and his MFA from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago in 1980, and lives in Chicago.
