About Jane Soodalter

As a fine art photographer, I strive to extract the beauty and complexity in everyday objects from their connection to the real world. Through close-up photography, I create new entities from old, defining them afresh by their form, color, size and scale.

Mundane and functional objects take on new identities, as a battered dumpster, a rusted earthmover, a painted stripe on a truck became subjects for my camera. Hidden in the cracked, peeling, and corroded surfaces of everyday weathered objects, I found a world more visually rich and intense than I could have discovered with my naked eye.
