Jan Goff-LaFontaine is a photographer and author whose ongoing work is dedicated to bringing awareness and healing through art. Using 35 mm and medium format cameras, she focuses her attention on people, spending hours to capture a moment, then returns to her darkroom to make her large black and white prints. She handcrafts each of her sensitive portraits to offer viewers a glimpse into the essence of her subjects. Jan’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States in numerous solo and group shows, and is included in many private and public collections. Her work with Vietnam veterans was released as a book titled Reflections—Between the Lines: The Healing of the Vietnam Generation in 2000. Her current work, Out of the Shadows, is on a national tour through 2007, and was the genesis for Women in Shadow and Light: Journeys from Abuse to Healing. Jan loves teaching others the art and techniques of photography as well. She is on the faculty of Peninsula Art School in Wisconsin and teaches privately from her home studio in California. She accepts freelance assignments, and her distinctive style is sought after for everything from CD covers to annual reports. She also enjoys creating unique and beautiful portraits for individuals and families.http://www.janlafontaine.com/index.html
