Biography

(SILVER AND GREY ONLINE)



JENNIFER HUMPHREYS

1937 – 1983

Jennifer Karen Humphreys was born in Sydney and became interested in photography around the age of twelve years, when she received an Enseign camera.

Humphreys had some of her animal photographs published in the Women’s Weekly while still a teenager.

In 1954 Humphreys studied at Ron Caswell’s School of Applied Photography and later, in 1956, joined Max Dupain’s studio as an assistant.

Ill health obliged Humphreys to leave full-time work in 1958. During the 1960s she continued photography from her home in Sydney with some freelance work and occasional commissions which included animal studies.
