Guest photographer for the Photographic Nights of Selma 2021
Jenny Fine (b. 1981, Enterprise, AL) is a visual artist currently living and working in Alabama. Rooted in the photographic form, Fine’s practice employs time as material in an exploration of both personal and cultural memory, identity, and our shifting relationship to the photograph in our digital, image-saturated age.

Fine was awarded a National Windgate Fellowship from the Center for Craft, Creativity and Design (2006); a Fergus Memorial Scholarship from The Ohio State University (2009); was selected by the Greater Columbus Arts Council, Columbus, Ohio for an artist residency in Dresden, Germany (2012).
