About the Photographer
Toles, Mary Jo
Artist Mary Jo Toles has been working with experimental photographic processes since the early 1970s. She is best known for her long-term investigations of high-voltage imaging, which were originally inspired by her discovery of Kirlian photography, an obscure process discovered in Russia in 1939 which uses strong electric fields to create a photogram on a photographic plate. Toles completed a BFA in photography and design from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and an MFA at the School of the Art Institute Chicago. She is a professor of photography and video at the Cleveland Institute of Art.
