artist intent

Finding fog & documenting beauty is what JT.Murphy does with the camera and her written works. Living with invisible injury and finding profound insight is what she lives. Poetically it is the single lens reflection in the camera that is her touchstone for life. Enjoy thinking about the metaphor of the SLR as you share her window views of policing and life after significant change.

Formally trained in Fine Art, JT.Murphy combines a lifetime of visual art training, and melts it, posthumously, with the career of documenting crime scenes.  Words, stories, articulable cause, and images paint many pictures in this peacemaker’s life. With the task of finding fog & documenting beauty JT.Murphy provides you with a moving, and tangibly unique, interpretation what what might is often overlooked.


What is observed above is rooted below.

 The camera is the tool used when walking in fog and searching for beauty.  JT.Murphy’s work is about peacemaking with life’s experiences. Though the title of “artist” very much applies, the method used to return to artist work has been extremely inconvenient. Inconvenient truth is the result of PTS”D” yet JT.Murphy takes this one step further and somehow manages to see light in fog and document beauty. 

Softened eyes, tenderized ears, and a throbbing heart are the results of life after a workplace injury.  The injury is commonly known as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but more recently it is being referred to as post traumatic stress growth (PTSG). Tenacity and resilience have been the driving forces designing disorder into growth, the method written word and photography.  Enjoy whatever piece of the journey speaks to you and know that which speaks, is now yours.
