Jane Heller approaches her photography with a philosophy influenced by her background as a graphic designer.
She gets to the essence of her subject through a process of elimination, using only the basic elements needed to convey her visual story.Combining classical formality, saturated tones and dignified restraint, her photography allows us into the lives of her subjects without being invasive or voyeuristic. Her carefully constructed tableaux are compelling for their formal strengths as well the sense of grace evoked within each subject and scene.
Jane Heller’s love of adventure has taken her to more than twenty different countries, each one inspiring her to capture the rich textures of the people and their surroundings. It is this celebration of humanity that flavours Jane’s work, drenching even the most prosaic scene in a specific atmosphere and mood.
