Jill Merriam

Richmond, VA

From local urban views, to the Mediterranean and beautiful villages of Provence, to Venice and Burano, and most recently again to Cuba, my work has evolved into an eclectic mix of art and documentary photography. I love to “catch the vibe” in new locations, capturing images spontaneously.

Back in my studio, imagery then becomes an artistic rendering of city/land/streetscapes, architectural details, textures, entropy, patina, and “street” portraits. Each photograph is processed individually, uniquely. All are natural light, documentary-style, captured moments (not “staged”) - reality with a twist.

JILL MERRIAM PHOTOGRAPHY and JILL MERRIAM DESIGN are subsidiaries of SHELL SYSTEMS LTD., a photographic arts studio in Richmond, Virginia. The studio/gallery is open weekdays 4:30 - 6:30pm and on weekends from 10:00am - 5:00pm (*by appointment).

A Curriculum Vitae is available upon request.
