Jim Ewel

Although I photographed in B&W with a Nikon film camera in my twenties, for over 30 years I took nothing but family snapshots. In mid-2015, with my kids grown, I decided to get back into photography and I bought my first digital camera.


I photograph primarily to observe the world more closely, learn about other people and other cultures, and to share my observations. Most of my work is in color, although the occasional project insists on being interpreted in B&W. My influences are Saul Leiter, Joel Meyerowitz, Harry Gruyaert, Arthur Meyerson, Sam Abel, and Alex Webb.


I’m constantly trying to improve my photography, both in terms of core photographic skills and in terms of storytelling. I particularly like collaborating with my subjects to make an interesting photograph.
