“The phrase: “A Celebration of Humanity” perfectly describes Ms. Jozwiak’s award-winning photography, also the title of the international photography exhibition and beautiful hard-cover book that currently features her work. The exhibit, recently on display in Grand Central Station, is now travelling around the world. Jenny’s work is the crystallization of enlightenment and unexpected beauty found in a distant land or human expression. She captures the story of people and the landscapes that hold them, all with tender consideration and insight. Affectionate rather than exploitive, her images seek out the redeeming rather than the abject. However, Jenny’s work never shies from difficult subject matter. Her documentation of people in impoverished countries show character through both good and bad fortune, always leaving her subjects with dignity, but shooting with fearlessness, her imagery encompasses an unusually large slice of life.”Agora Gallery, NYC
M.I.L.K Compilation Book and Exhibition: “Family, A Celebration of Humanity”, published by Harper Collins stands for: Moments of Inspiration, Love and Kinship’. Almost 20 years ago the founder, Geoff Blackwell, was so inspired by this idea that he began the MILK Collection. Geoff ran a global competition and gathered over 40,000 professional and amateur photographs which celebrated the very best of humankind. From these, 300 images were selected to be the heart of an exhibition, and used to create the three MILK titles ‘Family’, ‘Friendship’ and ‘Love’. The books were a global success, selling 4 million copies and 74 million greeting cards. Elliott Erwitt was the sole juror for this amazing project and he selected Jenny’s photo entitled: “Sister and Brother”, to be included in the Family book and exhibit.
