TESTIMONIALS

“Jesse Freidin… is one of the few photographers continuing the analog tradition in today’s digital world. His attention to detail from composing to photographing to printing to framing is exceptional. His portraits are truly works of art.”
Moira McLaughlin, Dog Art Today

“Jesse Freidin’s work exemplifies both aesthetic rigor and artistic openheartedness, characterized by visual tones and emotional notes so precise that each piece rings as clearly as a bell. His desire to investigate the bond between humans and their animal companions is born out of a respect and appreciation so genuine that it inspires a profound and lasting connection between himself and his subjects, evident throughout the images he creates. As a photographer, Jesse’s unswerving dedication to an ethics of analog materials allows him to produce prints with depth and texture unparalleled in a market flooded with digital excess. His work is truly a gift.”
S. O’Brien, Los Angeles

“Jesse Freidin is Rembrandt with a camera and a milkbone. In this age of instant digital gratification, his work stands alone to remind us of the time when pet portraits demanded a love for the subject and a dedication to doing it the right way with the right equipment. In the hands of this inspired photographer, that time is here again.”
Mary E. Thurston, author of ‘The Lost History of the Canine Race’

Constance Barich, San Francisco
