Day 226 Jason Grubb

Jason Grubb (Jehu) received his Bachelor of Science from Kent State University in 1992. He then took his camera and went West to see where he might land. After a couple years of exploration he decided to make Phoenix his home. In late 1994 he started to work as a photo assistant and later became a full time photographer for a commercial photography studio in Phoenix. 2000: Started Camerawerks with Jon Balinkie and moved to the downtown Phoenix area where he immersed himself in the growing Phoenix Art scene and commercial photography world. 2004: He and 3 partners open “LegendCity” which is a downtown studio/art space. 2006: He started “10DollarProject”. Where he photographs people on the street and gives them 10$ for their portrait. The idea is to give them something for their time and a small bit of worth. Most of the people photographed are Homeless. 2010: He became a member of “Through Each Others Eyes” which promotes cultural awareness through photography. 2012: he started working with an organization “Kids in Focus” which helps underprivileged youth using photography to ignite their imagination and build their sense of confidence and value. His personal and commercial photography appears in national ad campaigns, magazines, art shows and personal collections. My passion is to bring awareness to what we as a society choose to ignore in our daily lives. 

Here are some images from the 10Dollarproject.
