Jeff Swensen is a sucker for busy photo editors with challenging assignments on tight deadlines who still require good light on rainy days and varieties of the human condition in difficult situations.
He has traveled throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Midwestern regions of the United States making photos that describe the realities of the culture, politics, and economics…while enjoying the challenge of balancing the often conflicting concerns of photojournalism and fine art; hoping people might ponder what they see.
Swensen is represented by Getty Images and Verbatim Photo, formerly Getty Reportage. His photographs appear regularly in The New York Times, The Washington Post and Wall Street Journal…and a bunch of other places that Google knows about. He also has lights and a white backdrop; for the really creative folks.
He lives in Pittsburgh…and has 4 chickens and a dog.
Jeff is a founding member of American Reportage.
