Wallspace is delighted to be exhibiting at the Photo Independent in Los Angeles and exhibiting exclusively Jen Zahigian.
Jen Zahigian was born and raised in a Central California farm town, and now lives in Southern California. Her love of photography began as a child when her Grandfather, a Photographer, gave her a camera. He told her all about f-stops and shutter speeds, and the wonders of film. They went on day trips to Yosemite and other scenic spots, and worked side-by-side in his color darkroom. A little less cyan here, a touch more magenta there... she was hooked.
Jen loves to photograph America's worn-out, offbeat, and forgotten corners. Working with color Jen takes ordinary scenes just a bit beyond our everyday view. Many of her photographs depict California highway establishments and signage, revealing an appreciation for their dated aesthetic and patina of rust and neglect.
