|I AM JADE ALBERT,|
|best known for my whimsical work photographing children. As a freelance artist based in New York, my graphic design background enabled me to inhabit, in my own way, Christopher Isherwood’s classic phrase, “I am a camera.” My work has been published in major articles for Condé Nast and Hearst publications, and I joined the masthead of Andy Warhol’s Interview as a contributing photographer. I broadened my horizons by living in Milan and established myself as a successful photographer.|
The New York Times and Advertising Age have recognized me for “gaining a reputation as one of the nation’s leading commercial children’s photographers.” An American Photographer magazine cover story credited me with “reinventing the craft by allowing children to act as they do in real life.” My gallery work has been on view at Time Warner for Polaroid and the Epcot Center for Kodak. Many covers and assignments later, I directed a national television commercial for Target. My stock imagery is represented by Getty Images and has been used for national and international campaigns.
Cindy Crawford invited me to collaborate on, and incorporated my photographs in, her book, About Face (Harper Collins). My latest book, The Charm of Charms (Harry N. Abrams), which is available on Amazon.com, combined my design concepts with my photography style.
My career reflects my enthusiasm and continuing ambition to expand my goals. New York City is my playground where I live accompanied by my muse, Albert, a Yorkshire terrier.
