Artist Bio

A 1979 graduate of Johns Hopkins University, Jennifer Bishop has been living and photographing in Baltimore City since 1975. She fell in with a group of Hopkins kids who started Baltimore's City Paper and published a weekly stand alone photo in every issue for 17 years (1977-1994). These photos were comprised of "small, revelatory moments that define the strangeness of everyday life...and seek to chronicle the soul of Baltimore."1 She also worked as a staff photographer for the News American, and since 1981 has freelanced, shooting pictures for a variety of magazines, agencies, and institutions all over the world. She lives in Baltimore with her husband and two sons and boxes of hundreds of photos of Baltimore City. 1. Glenn McNatt, The Baltimore Sun, Oct 2000
