Jane Sobel Klonsky is our talented guest. She is an award-winning photographer and her latest work is the book, Unconditional, featuring stories of senior dogs. She and her filmmaker daughter Kacey also work on a continuing project called, Unconditional Stories, featuring more stories through photography and video.
Jane Sobel Klonsky launched her photography career in 1976 as the first photographer to scale the cables to the top of the Verrazano Bridge to get a shot of the start of the New York City Marathon. Jane was the official photographer of the New York City Marathon for the next 10 years.
For nearly thirty years, Jane was a major player in the world of commercial and sports photography, with clients including Adidas, Black & Decker, Club Med, Pepsi, Nike, Coca-Cola, Xerox and Miller High Life. Her work has taken her around the world to Kenya to shoot photos of a family of Maasai Warriors; to record an international running competition in Tokyo; and to chronicle the untouched beauty of far-reaching places like Papua New Guinea and Myanmar (Burma).
Known for her award-winning lifestyle photography, as well as for her work in fashion, travel, landscape and sports, her work has been published widely, and has been the subject of several books, including one based on a 50,000 mile cross-country photographic tour of rural America taken with her photographer husband, Arthur, and two Great Danes. She continues to do extensive work for Getty Images.
In addition to being a mother to Kacey, Jane lives with her husband, their two therapy dogs, Charlie and Sam, and a cat, Humphrey, in rural Vermont.
