Grounded in documentary traditions, Jenna Petrone investigates domestic spaces, how individuals shape their environments, and the converse. Her work depicts the themes of relationships, individuality, and meditations on light and interiors through an array of photographic narratives.
At present, Jenna is immersed in a daily photographic and writing project, which challenges the capacity of memory. Influenced by her grandfather proudly documenting the lives of each of his 11 grandchildren, Jenna is adopting the same intentions and lovingly applying them to the events that unfold in her day-to-day life.
Jenna received her MFA in photography from Parsons School of Design in 2018 and her BFA in Studio Art with specializations in photography and arts management from Cazenovia College in 2013. Jenna has participated in a number of international exhibitions including; “NOW” at the Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries in New York City, "Spectrum" at the Athens Cultural Center, in Athens, NY, and "Future Projections" at the India Photo Festival in Hyderabad, India. Additionally, she was an artist in residence at La Casa del Herrero in Torralba de Ribota Spain in 2017.
Jenna is now the co-founder and COO of the creative studio and artist hub, The House of Heart. With this platform, her and her wife create an inclusive space for up-and-coming creatives to come together and nurture their talents.
Based in Catskill, NY
