Photographer Jennifer Fry

Born just before the digital age, Jennifer Fry has been interested in photography since middle school.  Without a camera of her own in the early days, she would take pictures with point-and-shoot disposable cameras whenever she could, usually on missions trips with her youth group.  Upon graduation from high school in 2002, her parents gave her her first SLR camera.  It was a film camera, though she has since graduated to a digital SLR – also a gift from her parents – for its convenience.  A purist at heart, she still considers film to be the finest representation of photography available.

Fry transitioned to digital photography in 2009 when she moved overseas to South Korea to teach English as a second language.  She kept a blog during that time and understood that digital images embedded in her writing would better showcase her new world to her readers.  That, and she was doubtful of what ability Korea would have to develop film.  And so, the film SLR stayed home.

The collection you see on display, titled “Reflection and Shadow,” is a selection of her best digital images from 2009 to present. Some of them come from her time in South Korea.  Others come from trips she has taken with her husband, either to various parts of Texas or other parts of the U.S.  Her favorite subject matter are foreign streets, but anything that strikes her eye is fair game.  She enjoys capturing the world around her in an artistic, well-executed way.  In all, she has taken tens of thousands of photographs in her 20 years of shooting, though not all of them are worth being on display.

A native of San Antonio, Fry moved to Uvalde County four years ago with her husband.   She resides in the City of Uvalde.
