The Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery is pleased to present photographer Jason Jellick’s debut exhibition, PENINSULA, September 3-24, 2021. Jellick was named a 2021 Emerging Artist Fellow in Photography by the Delaware Division of the Arts.
Jellick began the journey of this exhibit about a year ago, driving the meandering, contemplative two-lane roads of the Delmarva Peninsula, working mainly in Delaware and Maryland, but occasionally Virginia. It is a series about place, he says, but it is also about the metaphor of a peninsula itself — one way in and one way out — providing a means to express the gamut of the human experience and emotions.
His stark black-and-white images speak to the viewer both powerfully and purely. He creates that emotive feel through the use of 35mm cameras and Ilford HP5 film.
Originally from Central Pennsylvania area, Jellick has been a Delaware resident for about six years.
