Jenna Mulhall-Brereton is a both a photographer and a professional in the philanthropy sector. These two passions are fueled by her travels throughout the world. Her photography is rooted in the documentary tradition, and she most often shoots in black and white. For her, this boils down what is most essential in an image—a graphic quality, a gesture, a subtle expression, a quality of light.
She maintains a deep and abiding love of film, and most often prints images by hand in an analog darkroom. She has been shooting and printing this way since she first became a photographer, nearly twenty years ago, and has been fortunate to study print making with masters like Chuck Kelton, among others.
Jenna has also had the opportunity to learn from extraordinary master photographers, Peter Turnley, Ron Haviv, and Chris Rainier among them. She is especially grateful to have been able to call Mary Ellen Mark both mentor and friend—as well as an enduring inspiration.
Her photographs have appeared in juried exhibitions throughout the US, and in a variety of publications.
