Jessica Craig-Martin

As an event photographer who works for publications like Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, Jessica Craig-Martin has carved out a distinct style. The events she covers for high end glossies offer unlimited access to the world’s most financially lubricated events. Her work offers a keenly observed portrait of haute society’s obsession with surface and conspicuous consumption. Manners, social codes, and the glittering props of obscene wealth are framed with a witty, somewhat merciless eye. She has said “The photographs occur in the place between desire and disappointment.”  She has exhibited her work widely and her work is in the collections of The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; The New Museum, New York, and The Guggenheim Museum, New York, among other public and private collections.  Craig-Martin lives in New York and works wherever the party is. She is currently working on a book of anecdotes drawn from her adventures in the field and other observations on modern life.
