About Jeff Jacobson

In 1976, Jeff began working in color while photographing the American presidential campaign. It was during this personal project that he began experimenting with strobe and long exposures, a now familiar technique that he pioneered.

Jeff joined Magnum Photos in 1978; he left in 1981 and helped found Archive Pictures.

He continued his color explorations in the United States throughout the 80′s, which culminated in the publication of his monograph, My Fellow Americans, by the University of New Mexico Press.

Jeff does assignments for magazines such as The New York Times Magazine, Fortune, Time, Geo, Stern, and Life.

Jeff’s photographs are in the permanent collections of The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Houston Museum of Fine Art, George Eastman House in Rochester, NY, The Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, AZ, or The Joy of Giving Society in New York.
