Jeff Krolick earned an MFA in sculpture, studying with Albert Paley, and worked for many years as a craftsman, metalsmith and sculptor, exploring how composition can unify disparate materials and seemingly contradictory conceptual themes. Photography has been his preferred medium for the past 20 years to discover/uncover these relationships in the seemingly mundane scenes of everyday life and the natural world. He recently began exhibiting his work again after pursuing a career for many years as a counselor and administrator in the community mental health field. His work has been included in a number of shows this year including solo exhibitions at the Silver Eye Center for Photography in Pittsburgh, PA and Dayton University’s Rike Center for the Arts as well as groups shows in Kansas City, Boston, Philadelphia and New York City.
Jeff’s work has been recognized with awards from the Silver Eye Center for Photography, the Society for Contemporary Photography and the International Photography Awards which selected him as Fine Art Photographer of the Year in 2005 and nominated him for a prestigious Lucie award.
