"In a mindful, meditative style I focus on capturing the beauty close-up in our natural world, in ordinary things, as well as the inner grace, and dignity of people.
Jed's approach with the subject results in a journey together, to witness and record. Within the safety of this connection, boundaries melt away and the subjects reveal themselves. A bicycle trip across the United States at 13 changed his perspective on people and travel. Later, living and working eight years in Japan, and photo projects worldwide (60 countries) allowed for exploration of new ideas and approaches and led to three solo shows and a book, Born Free & Equal.
Having grown through the process of the darkroom, Jed's current work is created digitally and enhanced to bring out the depth, richness, and evocative spirit of the image. All prints are completely archival, quality is paramount.
Share was highly influenced by the Family of Man photographers-- Weston, Adams, Ernst Haas, Avedon, and Penn. During the early 1980s in New York, Share assisted many leading photographers. His approach utilizing the close up, and abstracts of industrial texture lead to many successful annual reports and awards.
His prints are in collections worldwide.
