Featured Parader: Jeff Seltzer

December 9, 2010

Jeff Seltzer is a photographer based in Los Angeles. He was educated at San Diego State University, receiving a BA and an MA in Rhetorical Theory – a background which informs his art. This is Jeff describing his work:

My formal education is more about science – statistics, experimental design, and rhetorical theory. With statistical analysis, the goal is to sift through numbers and create a story true to the data – a story that can be understood and appreciated by a more general audience. In a similar way, I look through my camera’s viewfinder in attempt to reconcile the everyday “data” that surrounds us.

I find comfort and solace in this otherwise anxiety-producing world by creating a sense of harmony among the seemingly unrelated, mundane data around me. There are so many things I can’t control; but what I can control is what I see through my camera and how I present it to the world through careful framing and composition. My interest is generally not with the subject itself, but with the challenge – almost need – of creating and restoring this sense of order (or harmony).

Jeff’s work has been shown, published and awarded numerous times all over the country. Here are just a few listings:

  • Brilliant. I’ve seen Jeff’s work elsewhere, and admired it as much then as I do now.
