H. Jennings Sheffield is a contemporary artist working in lens based media, digital video and sound. At the age of 9, she received her first Polaroid camera from her grandmother. It was then, she knew she wanted to be a photographer. By age 11, she was introduced to an old 35mm Pentax and the darkroom, and began her career spending many hours behind the lens and elbow deep in photo chemicals.
She received her BFA from the Atlanta College of Art and her MFA from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Her current work investigates the idea of collective imagery through re-appropriation. She is an internationally active artist with her latest work exhibited at The Print Center in Philadelphia; Colorado Photographic Arts Center; B J Spoke Gallery in Huntington, New York; Newspace Center for Photography in Portland, Oregon; Living Arts of Tulsa; McDonough Museum of Art in Youngstown, Ohio; Cambridge University (UK), and What Do You Really Need?, Medien Kultur Haus Wels, Austria.
