Course Topics: Darkroom Printing, Nude, Portrait

Jason Andrescavage


I am concerned with photography that tells stories, relates experiences, and reveals people as dynamic subjects. Drawing my inspiration from legacy styles and processes, my goal with portraiture is to portray universal struggles with a sense of larger-than-life urgency. In my work I strive to depict my subjects in ways that simultaneously expose more than the everyday facade, yet also allude to further barriers left standing. I am equally concerned with what is being hidden from view as what is being shown. People interact with the world through the measured use of overt mannerisms and hidden thoughts. My aim is to take account of the evidence of this balancing act.

I have been creating photographs for 10 years, concentrating on traditional film and wet darkroom techniques. I am an alumni of the photography program at City College of San Francisco, and in January of 2014 I earned a Masters Degree in Photography from Kingston University, London. My personal practice centers on portraiture and fashion, and when not creating photographs I am a photography and darkroom teacher.
