Jeff Blucher continues to define his artistic expression through his own balance of calculation and experimentation. He photographs the world around him with intention, creating images that have meaning, beauty, and thought behind them. He is primarily self-taught.
His work has been featured in several exhibits, including the 2011 Lensbaby "Be Seen in DC" exhibit, the See | Me 2013 “The Story of the Creative” exhibit in New York City, and Life Framer's 2014 exhibit in London and Switzerland. His piece "Gasworks Calisthenics" was featured in Issue 26 of JPG magazine, and Jeff was selected as the 2011 RAW Photographer of the Year.
Jeff enjoys using a variety of cameras and techniques, both film and digital, and has a love for the surprising nuances that can be found in a vintage camera, or even a plastic “toy” camera. He does his own processing and enjoys spending rainy evenings with a fresh roll of film in the darkroom in his home.
For subject matter, Jeff often chooses natural subjects, and enjoys creating images that show the juxtaposition of man and nature. He is forever enticed by his love of capturing images on film, and his work is characterized by depth, interest, and the hint of story.
He was born in upstate New York’s Saratoga Springs, and then lived in Southern California for several years, he now finds himself at home in Seattle, Washington, with his wife and their two young daughters.
