Jennifer McKinnon Richman is a self-taught artist who has enjoyed learning from a handful of experts during her eight year journey in dumpster photography. Exploring the art of composition, color theory, collage, and drawing as well as enjoying photography classes  and workshops, Jennifer has found a way to combine her love of collage with photography by creating digital composites. Her unusual subjects, dumpster walls, provide the “paint” for her oceans and landscapes. Jennifer aims to capture the beauty of our planet while urging us all to be stewards of the earth by bringing to light the trash problem destroying
our planet. Jennifer has traveled to all fifty states with her husband and three children, capturing dumpsters and landscapes from coast to coast. She is a member of several photographic organizations across the country including the Atlanta Photography Group, Southeast Center for Photography, Texas Photographic Society, and the Griffin Museum. Her work has been on exhibit at Mason Fine Art, the Atlanta Photography Group, the Atlanta Artist Center, and was recently recognized as a semi-finalist in The Print Center’s 96th Annual; the recipient of a Special Mention Artist grant for the Future Art Awards:
Ecosystem X— by Mozaik Philanthropy; and a nominee for the 8th Fine Art Photography Awards. Jennifer recently signed on with Spalding Nix Fine Art Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia.
