Jack Welpott(1923-2007)出生于堪萨斯,他从12岁就开始拍照,14岁时就在当地的摄影比赛中获奖,曾从师Henry Holmes Smith,1968年起,他开始拍摄女性的题材,以妻子Judy Dater为模特,开始了一段长时间的创作。“摄影充实了我们的生活,昭示了生活的意义和方向。摄影中存在着很多相对立的东西:光明与黑暗,美丽和丑陋,崇高和平庸。摄影将你锁入某个时刻,某种永恒的存在。有时是生理感觉上的光,让世界变得明亮。你可以将现实聚合在一起。我开始了解到,这不仅仅是窥探世界的方式,我时常感觉到穿越了空间来到了一个平行的宇宙,异常神秘。” - Jack Welpott

Born in Kansas City, Jack Welpott (1923-2007) began taking photographs at the age of 12 and won a local photo contest when he was 14. Welpott studied photography with Henry Holmes Smith. In 1968 he began a collaboration in taking pictures of women with Judy Dater, whom he married. “Photography fleshes out ones life, gives it meaning and direction. The way in which it holds together opposites: light and dark, beautiful and ugly, sublime and banal. I like the way it locks you into the moment, the eternal present. Sometimes there is the physical sensation of light. The world becomes luminous. You get a chance to unite with reality. I have come to realize that it is more than an act of monitoring the world. Sometimes I feel like I am penetrating a void to a parallel universe. Pretty mystical I suppose.” – Jack Welpott
