Hailing from New York state, Jeffrey Conley received a BFA in Photographic Studies at Rochester Institute of Technology. In 1991, he moved to Yosemite National Park where he photographed extensively and led seminars in photographic instructions.
Now residing in Willamette Valley of Oregon, he concentrates his efforts on his creative photography. His subject matter is diverse, from urban landscapes and found still-lives, to studies of pristine wilderness. Each print he creates is meticulously crafted by him to his high quality standards with traditional darkroom processes. Subtle aesthetic variation within printing decisions, in conjunction with processing and printing material alterations make each print a distinctly original creation.
"Photography is for me a kind of meditation that widens my perception of the existing and evolving world around us. I seek refuge and simplicityin my photographs and find a personal resolution and fulfillment that I sincerely hope others experience as well."
