Known for her hard-edged black and white documentary photographs, Jill Freedman began shooting as a young woman in the 1970s. A self-taught artist, she is heavily influenced by the Modernist movement, a style that holds a deep emotional connection with the subject. Freedman’s images transform urban life into theatrical dramas, a process that requires embedding herself in a long-term documentary projects. Seven books, and countless solo and group exhibitions later, she is still shooting in New York City.
