© Jade Doskow Pool, 2009
Jade Doskow photographs architecture, but not in the typical way employed for this subject matter. Doskow brings to it a delicate, painterly touch, interpreting the history and aura of the subject at hand and infusing it with a very personal touch. Most recently Doskow has been photographing the sites and structures of the remains of world's fair sites internationally; in Looking Out/ Seeing In Doskow will have one work from this project as well as two other pictures examining the odd intersection of nature and structure.
Jade Doskow has lived in NYC since 1996, first receiving her BA at New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, then in 2008 earning her MFA at the School of Visual Arts, also here in New York. She has been the recipient of numerous honors, including the Herbert C. Rubin Award for Visual Arts, the Alumni Scholarship Award for her thesis work, and most recently, finalist in the international Photolucida competition. Doskow has exhibited frequently and has had two solo shows in addition to numerous group exhibitions; currently her work is on view in Seattle's Pacific Photo Center Northwest, ABC No Rio in New York, and the prestigious inMotion Auction, which benefits abused women. Her work has been featured in Photo District News; Visual Arts Journal; and the Morning News. Most recently Doskow has joined the faculty of both the School of Visual Arts and the International Center of Photography, where she will be instructing on 'Architecture and Photography' and 'The Blogosphere: Navigating New Media Culture as a Photographer.'
