Biography

Known for creating a personal link between viewer and subject, Judith Joy Ross takes pictures that capture a wide range of human experience, from political rallies to kids at play. Primarily a portrait photographer, Ross often uses an old fashioned method called “printing-out paper prints,” in which she works with an 8 x 10-inch tripod-mounted camera that requires no enlarger, producing black-and-white prints out of full sized negatives. This process was favored by one of her noted influences, Eugene Atget. Ross’s most famous images to date, her 1992 portraits of Cleveland Public School Students, have been displayed in such distinguished venues at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
