Jackson Koch: Urban Elevation: Skyline to Street

APRIL 8 - APRIL 30, 2016

Photographer Jackson Koch studies our urban environment. Koch takes us on a journey from bold skylines to abstract architectural studies to gritty black and white street scenes. These unique compositions are produced through conventional paper printing and the newer process of printing on metal.

Opening Reception: Friday, April 8 from 7-9 pm


I am a free-lance photographer residing in Avon Lake, Ohio and have lived in the Cleveland area all of my life. Having been exposed to photography at a young age by an artist, the emphasis was more about a means of expression rather than the mechanics of a camera. As a result, the artistic element of photography remains a great influence for me. 

Raising a family and balancing a career put my photographic aspirations on hold until later in life when I joined an organization that sought to save undeveloped land in my community with the intent to create a Metropark. An opportunity to raise money by selling photographs taken from this area rekindled the passion and eventually encouraged me to pursue photography on a professional basis. 

The evolution of digital photography has provided a framework to explore different interpretations and methodology. The boundaries of creativity are endless. My passion has always been landscape photography and capturing the abundance of natural beauty. However, I like to experiment with many different styles of expression and not settle on any one particular approach. 

I am currently a member of Western Reserve Photographic Society and exhibit frequently in their photography shows. In addition, I have been fortunate to be accepted into several juried art exhibitions including Firelands Association of Visual Arts (FAVA), Bay Arts, and Valley Arts Center where I have earned awards for some of my images.
