After spending years working in radio and as a graphic designer, Janet Jeffers recently became a full time photographer.
Janet works out of a studio in the Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower, and her work has been featured on book and magazine covers, in film and video and in permanent installations for the University of Maryland Medical System.
More than 50 of Janet’s photos of Cuba and the polar regions are featured in “Thaw,” a new site-specific art exhibit which opens with a free reception 7 p.m.-10 p.m. Friday May 15 at WTMD, 1 Olympic Place in Towson.
Baltimore bands Western Star and Jazz Lunch will perform, and the exhibit is presented by New Belgium Brewing Company.
Here, Sam Sessa talks to Janet about finding small yet poignant moments in larger, intimate objects, and what the polar regions and Cuba have in common.
