Jodie Hooker Photography

I would like to acknowledge that all landscape photos in these portfolios are produced on land originally occupied by indigenous peoples within the United States. Sovereign indigenous peoples have been the caretakers of these lands since time immemorial. Despite centuries of genocide and occupation these indigenous peoples continue as vibrant nations and bands to the present day. I take this opportunity to acknowledge the generations that have gone before and present day indigenous people

I am a Sacramento based artist drawn to ideas involving the nature of reality and the perception of the photograph as real. Painting and abstraction is seen as created or subjective. This play between real and unreal is reflected in the abstract forms and/or hand done areas in each image.
By working in a combination of straight, mixed media and alternative process photography I visualize this relationship between subjective and objective reality. Whether landscape or architecture or abstraction, an interchange between the seen world and the felt world is the subject matter of my work.
