Jordan A. Porter-Woodruff
Portraits: An Intimate View
The Sanctuary Hallways at Epiphany Center for the Arts
November 18, 2022 to January 7, 2023
An absolute millennial, Jordan Porter-Woodruff began to notice how the shift of celebrity has impacted the very people civilization has long respected and strove to protect: artists. During times of war and looting, artifacts are taken and looked upon as a valuable representation of a past time. However, the people that have created those pieces are either forgotten or looked over until long past their death. Porter-Woodruff’s desire for Portraits: An Intimate View is to ensure that this diminishment does not happen to artists that she truly appreciates and admires, particularly those she knows personally.
In 2019, Porter-Woodruff decided to start her blog, The Artists’ Feature. She took it upon herself to interview and photograph these artists, to create for them a cohesive artist profile that would not only show them at their happiest, but also at their most vulnerable point – to show them creating. Her blog site features artists such as Bisa Butler, Nick Cave, Norman Teague, Shani Crowe, as well as a number of other artists. The photographs in Portraits: An Intimate View are pulled directly from her work displayed on The Artists’ Feature.
