Biography

Jill Skupin Burkholder is a photographer working in the bromoil process, combining the old techniques with new digital approaches. She has taught bromoil's painterly brush-and-ink techniques in workshops for groups including the Texas Photographic Society, the Academia de Fotografia in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and Photographers' Formulary in Montana. Jill began working with photography in 1985 studying both traditional and digital photography and experimenting with various alternative photography techniques. She learned the bromoil process from Gene Laughter, a photographer who researched the technique by studying historical writings and interviewing members of The Bromoil Circle of Great Britain. She is a member of the International Society of Bromoilists, a small group of artists working in this elusive medium. Her images have been published in recent publications, Black and White Camera Craft by William Cheung and Art Business News, "Reborn Victorians." Her bromoils have been exhibited throughout the U.S and can be found in private and public collections.
