Happy Birthday: Jan Groover
Jan Groover was an American photographer who was born on April 24th.
Jan Groover was a formalist photographer, meaning she was primarily concerned with the images formal qualities such as the shapes, shadows, perspective, and lines. The emphasis of her work is not the objects that are presented. This perspective creates powerful photos full of depth and emotion even though the representational objects are simple and mundane.
I personally love the painterly aspects of her photos.
