Jennifer Clarke

A few years ago Jennifer Clarke was preparing to participate in her first art show, the Side Show at the Yellow Cab Building.  That show ended up being instrumental for Clarke in more ways than one as she began to realize her potential as a music photographer.  October marks the opening of Clarke first solo photography exhibition focusing on pictures of local musicians. Clarke visited the WYSO studios to talk about her work on Kaleidoscope.
