Award-winning photojournalist and fine art photographer Jane Phillips has more than 20 years of experience at newspapers, wire services and magazines. Her photography has been exhibited at shows in New York City, Maine, and Santa Fe, and has been published in several books.
Born and raised in New York, Phillips now resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico and works at the Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper. She approaches her subjects with a sense of humor while capturing the spirit and souls of those she portrays. She is readily accepted by many cultures and works unobtrusively to fit the camera's eye within the event.
Most recently, Verve Gallery of Photography presented a special exhibition to raise funds to support the Photo Archives at the Palace of the Governors/New Mexico History Museum Winter 2012. Phillips was chosen as one of four local photographers who participated and made commissioned portraits of individuals along with exhibiting her own work. This past fall her work has taken her to South Africa where she documented the work of Indigenous Artisans for the Mpumalanga Traditional Art Market. She exhibited images of that journey at the New Mexico State Capitol Building gallery for three months in 2009 as part of a group photojournalism show. A six month solo show of South Africa images followed at the New Mexico State Land Office in 2011 and at the Mpumlanga Traditional Art Market in South Africa October 2011.
Phillips earned a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Her work experience includes New York Newsday, New York Times, New York Post, UPI and both the Maine and Santa Fe Photographic Workshops.
Jane Phillips Photography is available to document the human experience in diverse environments. Her work is recorded with 35 mm digital or film media.
