Jennifer Brandon is a Bay Area-based studio photographer and received her MFA from Mills College. In her work, she exploits the alchemical process of photography to transform common substances and everyday objects into something new and unexpected. Her media include reclaimed silver, Cinefoil, glass, and silver leaf. She often obscures the original material through scale, composition, and movement to create mysterious visual landscapes that are both abstract and familiar.

Many of Brandon’s images evoke a sense of geological timelessness and read as otherworldly topographies. Peak I, made from a window film intended to guard against light and prying eyes, suggests a distant mountain vista.
