"Photography is for me a kind of meditation that widens my perception of the existing and evolving world around us. I seek refuge and simplicity in my photographs and find a personal resolution and fulfillment that I sincerely hope others experience as well."

-Jeffrey Conley

Jeffrey Conley is a fine art landscape photographer who is well known for his meticulously crafted black and white prints. His prints are made utilizing traditional darkroom processes of gelatin silver as well as hand-coated platinum/ palladium. Platinum/ palladium prints are characterized by an exceptionally long and delicate range of velvety tones and a warm image color. They are considered among the most permanent of photographic print making processes due to the profound stability of the platinum group of noble metals of which the image is constituted. Conley's work has been internationally exhibited and is included in museum collections worldwide. In 2011, his first monograph, Winter, was published by Nazraeli Press. A second Monograph with Nazraeli Press is scheduled for release towards the end of 2017.

Through his photography, Conley strives for a balanced simplicity that evoke his sense of wonder and reverence for the natural world. Scale and palette vary, from small, intimate and subtle, to large, grand and dramatic. In all he seeks to capture a meditative spirit that is unique in his approach to landscape photography. In the end he painstakingly strives to create beautifully luminous individually crafted prints.

Originally from New York State, Jeffrey received a BFA in Photographic Studies at Rochester Institute of Technology. In 1991 he moved to Yosemite National Park in California's majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. There he explored the Sierra, photographed extensively, and taught photography at The Ansel Adams Gallery. He now lives in the Willamette Valley of Oregon with his wife, daughter, and trusty canine companion, Shadow.
