Jordan Duerr was born and raised in a small town on the Long Island Sound. She lives and works in Boston, Massachusetts. In December of 2017, she received her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a focus in Photography. She was incredibly fortunate to be introduced to art at a young age by her mother and grandfather; both artists and art teachers. Her work often takes inspiration from her family history and the group of characters found there. Ideas may also be influenced in part by an interest in psychology and other sciences. The history of photography and physical photographs are often influences as well. Although she majored in Photography, she often does not confine her work to one medium or process.
