Jay Dorfman is originally from New York City and works in photography, film and video. He travels the world and explores a variety of photographic techniques such as High Dynamic Range Imaging, originally developed in the 1930’s.
“My aim is to create ‘real’ images; I attempt to expose what’s going on deep within my subjects. My photographs are of authentic people with their emotional and physical baggage exposed.”
Jay’s travels have been inspirational “I have been intrigued and puzzled by the differences in cultures around the world. My photographs are designed to capture a moment, a certain look in someone’s eye. I don’t set out to exploit emotions, but I feel an image should provoke a feeling; it should inspire or trigger something very deep within the observer.”
His works have been displayed at Ellis Island and at the Borghi and Baboo galleries in NYC.
