Jenn Reidel is a conceptual artist whose narrative work combines her favorite mediums of photography, writing, and performance.
Since 1997 she has acted out stories before her camera on Vashon Island. Much of her artistic career has been spent in black and white darkrooms, and she has experimented with many alternative processes, such as cyanotypes, Polaroid transfers, photo-etchings, and encaustic transfers. She is inspired by dreams, Pre-Raphaelitism, and 19th century allegorical photography.
She earned a Fine Art Photography certificate from the Photographic Center Northwest, where she created In Her Dreams. For many years her photo series were exhibited by Gallery 070, including Ghosts in Love, A Fury Tale, and The Desk. Her most recent installation, Rodin's Photographer, was shown at Vashon Center for the Arts in January 2020.
Reidel also freelances in print and web publishing as a writer, designer, photographer, and editor.
