Jamie Kripke

Jamie Kripke is an artist from Toledo, Ohio. Having cut his teeth as a commercial photographer, Jamie has since parlayed his photo-centric practice into a multi-media art practice blurring the lines between contemporary photography and fine art printmaking.

When asked, "What do you shoot?" which happens rather often, Jamie responds accordingly, "I get this question a lot. And to be honest, I wish I didn't. It would be so much easier if I could just say "people" or "landscapes" or "sports," but the fact is, answering that question takes me some time. Because I've never wanted to shoot just one thing — much like I've never wanted to eat, write, paint, read or think only one thing." So instead of "what do you shoot?" Jamie wishes people would ask, "why do you shoot?" To which he'd say, "I shoot because finding beauty in the everyday makes me happy."
