There have been times without cameras and times without horses, but those times are long forgotten in the life of photographer Juliet R Harrison. Born on Long Island in the late 1950’s of urban intellectuals who took time to travel and explore the arts. Discovered the love of horses at age 5 when given the gift of a tiny book of black and white horse photographs.A harbinger of things to come, the obsession continued until the age of 15 when it was put aside for other things. A camera was always nearby but only to document places visited and people loved. Advancing her education, Ms. Harrison obtained a BA in psychology.
Photography grew in importance after her college years. Eventually living in New York City, architecture was the primary subject matter for Ms Harrison. Jobs as an administrator in custom color photo labs helped her learn about the print. A job as an assistant to a Fine Art reproduction photographer taught her about the camera and lighting. From 1988-1991 the photographer honed her skills in the MFA studio program at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. In 1991 she graduated with a MFA in Photography.
The year 1999 began the return to horses, finding her true subject matter in the Equine form. Ms Harrison has exhibited work in juried shows, invitationals, and museums throughout the United States. Her work is in private collections throughout the world.
