Jane Fulton Alt
Chicago photographer, Jane Fulton Alt, is one of those rare visionaries that keeps exploring the world by utilizing new ways of expression and story telling for each project. Five series are featured below, but her site reflects many more, each with a unique, yet masterful approach to the subject matter. Her wide array of projects have been well exhibited and published. She also has a comprehensive blog. Jane has also been a clinical social worker for 35 years, and a photographer for half that time. Her work from, The Treatment Room, marries the two professions.
Jane’s current project is a soon to be published book, Look and Leave: Photographs and Stories from New Orlean’s Lower Ninth Ward. “As a participant in New Orleans’s “Look and Leave” program, Jane Fulton Alt accompanied Lower Ninth Ward residents back to their homes for the first time since fleeing Hurricane Katrina. Alt’s photographs and stories reflect the intense drama of the epic loss this community endured while highlighting lasting hope and inspiration. It is through Alt’s social worker’s compassion and keen photographer’s eye that we are given a better understanding of what it meant to be a resident of the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans immediately following Hurricane Katrina.”
