Jay Muhlin works in photography with a focus on artist books. Through his work he explores the themes of loss, intimacy, comfort, anxiety, and masculinity. What results are multivalent narratives that not only define his subjects with empathy, but also seek emotional truth.
Muhlin has a MFA in Transmedia/Art Photography at Syracuse University and a BFA in Photography from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. His work has appeared in various editorial publications worldwide. He has recently completed residencies at the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester NY, The Millay Colony for the Arts in Austerlitz, NY and at the Contemporary Artists Center at Woodside in Troy NY. Muhlin has taught at Syracuse University, Salem Community College, was a visiting faculty member at Bennington College, Moore College of Art & Design, University of Delaware, and The College of New Jersey.
