jdc Fine Art Director, Jennifer DeCarlo, is the feature of Photograph Magazine’s In Profile column by Sarah Schmerler.
DeCarlo’s eclectic stable favors work with complex and often elegiac narratives, including imagery by Mexican-born Tatiana Parcero, who overlays images of her own body with cosmological maps and anatomical diagrams, and Paul Turounet, whose recent exhibition at the New Mexico State University Art Gallery displayed his photographs of illegal immigrants on an actual wall salvaged from the border between the U.S. and Mexico. “The border is just 20 minutes from my house,” says DeCarlo. “We should just have as our motto ‘Let Art Lead The Way.’ I may run this gallery by myself, but I almost always use the plural when I refer to what we do here. It’s the artists, and all the collaborators, and all the vast issues that surround us. It’s not just me.”
