The Fairfield Museum is pleased to continue celebrating the exceptional work of talented photographers from across the region through the IMAGES 2020 Juried Photography Show, which opens on Saturday, April 25 with a special Gala Preview Party. A jury of three professional photographers will select approximately 40 photographs for the exhibition, and the selected photos will be shown alongside the remarkable work of celebrity portraitist and commercial photographer Victoria Will.
Featured Photographer: Victoria Will
Victoria Will began her career in the photography industry as a photojournalist and has since transitioned her focus to celebrity portraiture, editorial, and commercial assignments. Victoria’s characteristically authentic portraiture has appeared in the pages of Vogue, New York Times, Rolling Stone, ESPN and W Magazine with commercial campaigns for brands such as Carhartt, Levis, Netflix, Hulu, AT&T, Bose, Ralph Lauren, and Miller High Life. Her approach is rooted in collaboration and meaningful connection where she seeks intimacy, authenticity, and elegance with a thoughtful eye and composition.
Recognized by numerous honors, including American Photography, PDN Photo Annual, and Communication Arts, her imagery has been the subject of both solo and group exhibitions internationally. Her first monograph, Borne Back, a collection of tintype portraits, was published in 2017 by Peanut Press and will be the highlight of her work shown at the Fairfield Museum and History Center. A Washington, D.C. native and graduate of Princeton University, Victoria now resides in New York with her photojournalist husband, their two sons, and two French Bulldogs.
IMAGES 2020 is presented in memory of Marcia B. Saft. A former Fairfield Museum Board Member and devoted community leader and philanthropist, Marcia Saft (1945-2016) was an enthusiastic supporter of Fairfield’s history and artistic legacy. With special thanks to the Bruce S. Kershner Gallery.

A jury will select approximately 40 photographs for exhibition in the IMAGES 2020 Juried Photography Show, which will be on display at the Fairfield Museum from Sunday, April 26, 2020 through Sunday, June 7, 2020.
