Jeffrey Conley is a fine art landscape photographer who
specializes in creating traditional black and white prints. His meticulously
crafted prints, made utilizing traditional darkroom processes, are made in
small limited editions. His work has been widely exhibited and collected by
private collectors and museums worldwide. In 2011 his first monograph, Winter,
was published by Nazraeli Press.
Conley's photographs strive for a balanced simplicity that
evoke his sense of wonder and reverence for the natural world. Scale and
palette vary, from small, intimate and subtle, to large, grand and dramatic. In
all he seeks to capture a meditative spirit unique in his approach to landscape
photography. In the end he strives to create beautifully luminous handcrafted
prints utilizing traditional photographic processes.
Originally from New York State, Jeffrey received a BFA in
Photographic Studies at Rochester Institute of Technology. In 1991 he moved to
Yosemite National Park. In Yosemite he photographed extensively, taught
photography at The Ansel Adams Gallery, and met his future wife. He now lives
in the Willamette Valley of Oregon with his wife, Jennifer, and daughter, Ella.
