Frances Jakubek was raised by a designer and a banker in the woods of Connecticut. A love of photography and education led her to receiving a Bachelor’s Degree of Science focusing in photography from the New England Institute of Art in 2009. While in college, Frances and a small group of students designed a curriculum for the Boston Charter Preparatory School to implement a photography program for the students that has grown ten fold since its inception. She continues to pursue her passion of photography working as the Associate Director of the Griffin Museum in Winchester, Massachusetts learning what goes on behind the scenes of installation, day-to-day, and how each set of eyes can have a different view of the same image. A recent judge for the Scituate Historical Society’s 375th student exhibition, Frances has a goal of learning about new artists every single day and continues to make her own photographs as well.
