Item details

My “Tech Vanitas” photography series embraces the anxiety surrounding new technology and love for beautifully designed, obsolete machines. These contemporary vanitas still life photographs combine cutting-edge devices and vintage technology. I titled this photograph "Player Piano" for the paper rolls of music (referred to as "music storage medium" on Wikipedia!) used to operate an antique player piano.

Jeanette May's artistic photographs are filled with whimsy and humor.

Jeanette May is a photo-based artist using a critical, sometimes playful, approach to investigate representation. Early training as a painter is evident in her carefully arranged compositions and rich color palette. Jeanette “makes” photographs: constructed, staged, lit, and carefully considered. Her recent still life project, "Tech Vanitas", embraces her love of vintage tech and the anxiety surrounding technological obsolescence.

Jeanette received her MFA in Photography from CalArts and her BFA in Painting from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Her work is exhibited in galleries and museums internationally, including New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, Toronto, Shanghai, Barcelona, Milan, and Athens.

Jeanette lives in Brooklyn, NY, and works from her studio at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (EFA) in Manhattan.
