About Jeanette

Jeanette Spicer is a photographer and educator with several years of experience educating within nonprofits, educational institutions and agencies in New York City; a few include The International Center of Photography, Pratt Institute, School of Visual Art, and Magnum . Trained first in the darkroom for several years, and then digitally, Spicer’s understanding of photography is vast. Spicer’s personal work engages with intimacy, the gaze, and how the body is situated within spaces. Working with photography, video and multimedia, she understands that not all projects are always realized in a set of photographs. Therefore, her workshops and mentorships support students interested in working with various mediums to best support the given concepts. She believes in creating a learning environment that is constructive, supportive, and rooted in open dialogue. Spicer’s passion for teaching photography is not only to share her experience and ideas, but to work collaboratively with students to help them realize their specific interests and passions.
