Ruth F. Jansyn has been taking photos since she received her first Kodak box camera as a child, graduating to a Nikon, a Minolta 7 and finally a digital camera.
“For me, the most important instrument is my eye, both when I snap the shutter and then when I view the image,” Jansyn said.
Along the way from her journey from high school teacher to college professor she traveled to archaeological sites in Northern Italy, Australia, and Russia and along with her husband traveled across the United States and Europe.
For seven years she studied photography at Long Island University in New York. She has lived in Highland Park for three decades and new splits her time between New Jersey and south western Texas.
