About the Photographer

Alt, Jane Fulton

American, b. 1951

In her series The Burn (2007), Jane Fulton Alt explores the regenerative yet destructive process of controlled prairie burns. Taken in Lake Forest, IL the photographs in this series depict a liminal space where destruction merges with renewal, signaling nature’s cyclical and inevitable process of life and death.

She is a three-time winner of Photolucida’s Critical Mass and received the Humble Arts 31 Women in Art Photography Award (2012), the Photo District News Curators Choice Award (2011), the Illinois Arts Council Fellowship (2007) and multiple Ragdale Foundation Fellowships (2007, 2008, 2009).
