Jill Enfield is a fine-art photographer, educator, curator and author and has been teaching photography for many years with a concentration on historical techniques and alternative processes. Her books on alternative processes are used in schools all over the world; her work is shown throughout the United States and Europe. 

Jill’s one-woman show, The New Americans, was exhibited in six galleries on Ellis Island, and included the Glasshouse of Immigrants, a glass house made of old windows and portraits of recent immigrants. The show, with the Glasshouse of Immigrants, was also featured at Photoville in New York City and the Annenberg Center in Los Angeles. She discussed the show during this interview with the Orange County Arts Council

For her recent work, titled The Way Home, Jill used her iPhone to take images from the Metro North commuter train that she rides a few times a week, traveling along the Hudson River from the Beacon train station to NYC. Jill made positive transparencies from the iPhone images to contact print on to glass for the final pieces. 

Jill has been teaching at Parsons The New School of Design since the late 1980s and has also taught at the International Center of Photography in New York City and at many workshops throughout the world. Her fine-art images can be seen in many museums around the world as well as in private collections.
