Jayson Shenk, The Land Where I Work
Recently, one of WRL’s photographers, Jayson Shenk had his work featured alongside another artist, Emily Hendel at University of Mount Union’s Beeghly Hall Gallery. This event was a dual reception with work from his self-published photo book, The Land Where I Work. He says he’s pursued photography ever since his parents bought him a Fisher-Price camera as a kid. Shenk has been shooting professionally since 2005.
“Most of my fine art type work lets me push the boundaries of my technical knowledge with photography and helps me learn more about creating shots – a lot of it being translated into my work,” says Shenk. “For this, I learned a lot about low light and long exposures, which translated into the recent series of photos I took for a client.”
