UPDATE - APRIL 2015 - APRIL 2017

Jane Stevens' black and white photographs capture the magical and
spiritual quality a camera can record. These photographs capture the
essence and spirit of a place. Using this light sensitive medium, the
artist captures a moment in time and the illusive quality of light.

The photographs document approaching storms using infrared film. Storms
can bring sudden and transforming experiences to the people who experience
them. There is a very energetic and overwhelming energy that precedes a
storm. These photographs are metaphors for personal struggles that people
experience in their lives.

Stevens lives and works in Chicago, IL. She is a curator, photographer,
and art educator whose work focuses on both personal and natural

Stevens has exhibited her work nationally and internationally including
the Los Angeles Photography Center; Galeria Tonalli, Mexico City;
University of Arizona, Tucson; J.B. Speed Art Museum, Louisville,
Kentucky; and Laguna Gloria Art Museum, Austin, Texas.

She is currently a Curator of Art, Emeritus at the Illinois State Museum.
Stevens is represented by Ceres Gallery, New York City and ARC Gallery,
Chicago, IL
