“Photography helps people to see”. This quote by Berenice Abbott has always been a favorite. The ability to see and capture a moment in time is the true pleasure, for me, of photography.

My name is Jane Lurie. I grew up in New Jersey and worked in the education field for my career. I moved to South Carolina outside of Charleston for fifteen years before moving to San Francisco a few years ago.

I still remember the thrill of getting my first SLR camera, a Minolta, in high school. When I started taking darkroom classes I discovered the power of black and white photography. I revered Ansel Adams and his landscapes.

Digital cameras and blogging provided new avenues for me and I’m inspired by the connections and creative possibilities. I am drawn to many subjects, especially landscapes, street photography, portraiture, architecture and nature.

I am very pleased to be a part of Monochromia, a talented group infatuated with black and white photography. It is nice to know you are all out there looking for the light and seeing in monochrome.
