Joronne Jeter is a lifelong photographer whose work ranges from cultural documentary to high fashion. Jeter has worked with many of the top photographers in the industry, including his mentor, Greg Gorman, Hollywood’s legendary portraitist. Inspired by the art and design worlds and his travels to over 50 countries, his photography pushes the envelope of creative image-making, imagining a new kind of glamour free from convention.
Starting points for Jeter’s images can range from a world event reported on the morning news to the traditional floral headdresses he saw when visiting the Indonesian island of Bali. “My sensibility has been shaped by differences,” he says. “My experience has given me a global perspective, and that informs the kind of photography I do.”
Jeter’s first monograph, Transcending Chaos, a 280-page coffee-table book that includes both fashion and travel images, was published October 2015.
