Introduction from Jan Kapoor:
My first book, is called The Intertidal World. This portfolio of images from coastal Georgia is my expression of reverence and wonder for this place that I call The Intertidal World. The presence of the sea is felt everywhere, in even the smallest details. The massive forms of the live oaks, their twisting, writhing limbs festooned with long grey airy strands of Spanish moss that sway in the slightest breath of wind; interlaced sword-like palmetto fronds lining a sandy road that vanishes into the distance; ruins of past grandeur being absorbed back into the earth; deer wandering quietly across a field at dawn; the sudden bright expanse of the dumes, the beach and the limitless ocean: all these speak to me, and I could spend several lifetimes photographing them.
Jan Kapoor has been involved in fine art photography for many years, her primary interests being landscape, natural abstraction and still life. She uses medium and large format cameras, and does extensive printing in cyanotype and platinum/palladium. Kapoor has been drawn to specialize in pinhole imagery for the past several years.
I find that pinhole is most expressive of the imperceptible passage of time, making visible that which is invisible to the ordinary eye, and of the mystery of non-human life which surrounds us.
Jan’s artistic expression has been greatly enhanced by her fine arts background, which includes studies in painting at the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston; a two-year program in fine art photography at the Southeastern Center for Photographic Arts; and her recent completion of a BFA summa cum laude in photography at Georgia State University. In addition, she cites influences on her work such as Imogen Cunningham, Clarence John Laughlin and John McWilliams, among many others.
