UNKNOWN AND UNFRAMED……DISCOVERED BY JED

Available for the first time ever, a selection of the photographic offshoots and out-takes discovered by JED will be for sale at The Outsider Art Fair opening on January 21st at The Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street in New York City. Presented by Marion Harris, an exhibitor since the fair’s inception 23 years ago, the work is a new addition to the Outsider field.

A variation on the genre of vernacular or “found” photographs, JED’s images have been retrieved(with permission) after being deliberately discarded by their original makers over the last decade.

Inspired by the concept of “The Artist’s Struggle”, these abandoned photographic images and test strips are presented out of context exemplifying the historical search for the perfect photograph.

JED is the fictitious persona of a university professor and photographer whose work has been exhibited internationally and is in private and museum collections — a background that gives theviewer and collector an unusual insight into the authority behind the photographic edit.

It is, literally, the story as seen from the outside. The process of selection, curation and editing is a visual narrative told by JED.

First shown at Lyman Allyn Art Museum in Connecticut in 2008, JED’s intent is to encourage a dialogue comparing the value of work by professional and untrained photographers.
