Jean Miele is a photographer’s photographer. He is a consummate professional, presenting images that were not only exquisitely complex and perfectly executed, but each piece of paper was a work of art. His portfolio boxes, his leave-behinds, and his attention to detail make him the poster child for showcasing work. For someone with incredible standards, Jean was incredibly open and encouraging to other photographers at the event.
Jean teaches workshops around the world–ICP and Adorama in New York, at the Maine Media Workshops, and in Oslo, Norway, and also has a roster of commercial clients. “Although known for his digital work, Miele’s background in the photographic craft is firmly rooted in the traditional “wet” darkroom. Initially, his idealized black-and-white landscapes were created with enlargers. Today, he fuses classical 20th century landscape techniques and ideals with 21st century technology, integrating traditional and digital techniques and materials.”
