Morning Glory: JENNIFER McCLURE
JENNIFER McCLURE is a portrait photographer based in New York City. She began her career intending to focus on documentary photography, taking classes at both the School of Visual Arts and the International Center of Photography. Major life changes and an unexpectedly long illness led to self-portraits, which helped her to make sense out of chaos with the only subject available. Her work has been exhibited in the group shows “Escape Artist” curated by Brad Greenwood and “Moment of Recognition” curated by Amy Arbus. She is currently working on a group of photos set in hotel rooms (the series is still in the editing process) that explore the patterns of her past relationships.

ONE WORD THAT DESCRIBES YOUR MOOD IN THE MORNING? Confused. I have pretty intense dreams, and it takes me a while to separate the dreams from reality. WHAT GETS YOUR JUICES FLOWING? Short stories, poetry, novels, movies. Heartache.
