Jim Mitchell

My photographic career spans forty years of travel, curiosity and visual and social sensibility.

My body of work reflects my never-ending curiosity about the world and people, about their daily lives and habitats, and how they go about them in this ever-changing environment we live in.

I try to instill this passion in the images I create, to make some sense of order out of all the visual chaos that surrounds us. This helps me to find a better understanding of the world around me and maintain a meditative sense of balance in my photographs. Creating art is very much about evoking primal feelings from the viewer; it is my hope that the closer I get to my work emotionally, the closer it can get to you.

I have studied at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops in Santa Fe, New Mexico and at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C.

My photography has been showcased at The Art League in Alexandria, Virginia; The Artist Gallery in Columbia, Maryland; The Marlboro Gallery in Prince George’s County, Maryland; and The Artists Gallery in Frederick, Maryland.
