The Art of Resilience through Photography, Botany with Becky Jaffe

November 9, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

| $5 – $10

About the presenter:
A photographer, naturalist, and educator living in Oakland, California, Becky Jaffe is active in the Bay Area photography community, teaching Art of Seeing courses for advanced fine art photographers, curating group exhibits in galleries and greenhouses, and judging competitions at the Berkeley Camera Club, the Contra Costa Camera Club, and the Alameda Photographic Society. She is the 2019 Artist-in-Residence at the University of California’s Botanical Garden at Berkeley, where she has served as a docent for over a decade. She is fortunate to teach photography and art history internationally as a lecturer for Cal Discoveries Travel. In her dedicated photography practice, she uses in-camera techniques that stretch the photographic medium to create painterly effects, fusing an artist’s sensibility with a biologist’s curiosity in order to communicate reverence for the natural world.

Jaffe’s photographs have been recognized by the California Academy of Sciences, the Center for Fine Art Photography, the Entomological Society of America, the Japanese Consulate in San Francisco, and have been published in The Buddhist Poetry Review, Bay Nature Magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle and National Geographic’s Your Shot.
