Jennifer Trausch, a 2000 Cleveland Institute of Art graduate, is the Director of Photography at the 20X24 Studio in New York City. This former Polaroid studio is the only facility in New York that offers one-of-a-kind large-format analog technology. Jen has directed the studio operations for more than five years.
In large-format photography, according to Jen, "many artists feel that the tonal nuances produced by Polaroid 20x24 film are impossible to capture with digital means. In some ways digital is too perfect, and many artists still yearn for the uniqueness and personality of large-scale Polaroid prints."
Successful as a large-format photographer herself, Jen uses the camera she manages to produce her own work that is exhibited around the world.expand collapse
