About the Author

Jaeda DeWalt
Jaeda-DeWalt Seattle, Washinton, USA

I am a self-taught taught artist that discovered my passion for photography, back in 1995, while writing my first book, "Haunting Hands". A book initially intended to be a collection of poems i had written about surviving a difficult childhood. I decided it would feel more personal if i created the cover for the book myself. Shortly thereafter, i purchased a camera and turned my living room into a makeshift studio. I did a series of self-portraits and then another and another. The process of creating and putting myself in front of the camera felt cathartic, liberating and healing.

My book transformed into a, survivor-orientated, photographic essay and that started me down the path to becoming a photographic artist.

I have produced cover art for books, playbills, collective fine art books and have had several exhibits of my work in New York, including the Hofstra Museum.

As a self-portrait photographer, you have the advantage of always having a beautiful cooperative "muse" available whenever you get the creative urge. Lovely and haunting book, I just discovered you on I'd love to hear any comments you may have on my work, here and there too.
