Jerri Graham is a photographer and writer purposefully planted in Westport, where she lives with her daughter and a house of pets. Capturing life through imagery has been her language for over 35 years. A government-trained photographer, Jerri began shooting as a teen with her father, who taught her the importance of 「telling all of the stories 」 through images.
Over the years, Ms. Graham has made her life as a writer, radio-show host, editor, teacher, food entrepreneur, and freelance photographer on three continents. Through her lens, she captures lives as she sees them and the stories she wants them to tell. From street photography to her portraits of the known and the known to few, her priority remains constant: portraying authentic humanity via the grains of light and life seen through her lens. She sees her subjects as art-in-life and insists they are worthy of being displayed and heard.
The Westport Permanent Arts Collection recently acquired two of Ms. Graham’s prints, and she sells limited-edition street photography to private collectors in the region.
As a Korry Fellow, Jerri looks forward to creating a marriage between her images and words in a multi-sensory storytelling exhibition where sound, story, and imagery come to life.
