Jenny Sampson: Skaters

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Please join Books on the Park on Wednesday, November 29th at 7:30 p.m. as we welcome Jenny Sampson to celebrate the release of Skaters: Tintype Portraits of West Coast Skateboarders.

"Skateboarding culture is exceptionally well-documented, and yet, the catalog of images is almost completely without portraiture...until now. In ghostly tones and stark, haunting relief, Sampson has pulled off the trick of tricks: She has persuaded random skaters to sit still while she photographs them with a staggeringly slow camera, and in doing so, she has captured, against all odds and with chilling nuance, the restless soul of skateboarding." — Bret Anthony Johnston, author and skateboarder

Jenny Sampson earned a B.A. in Psychobiology in 1991 at Pitzer College and has since dedicated her time to her photographic endeavors: wet plate collodion, traditional black and white photography and commissioned portraits. She has exhibited her work nationally and in the United Kingdom. When not in the field or the darkroom, she pursues another chemically-related talent by cooking professionally. Be it photography or the culinary arts, Jenny maintains an honest, nuanced style and free-spiritedness throughout it all. Jenny was born and raised in San Francisco and currently resides in Berkeley, California.
