About the Item

These were from a show of her work. Influenced by Surrealism and Dada Photographs these are images of old children's dolls in various states of decay. These bear the influence of Hans Bellmer, Dora Maar and Man Ray. Jo Ann Krivin born in Reasnor, Iowa in 1933, daughter to Earl Guthrie and Lillie Cramer. She graduated from Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa, with a bachelor of music degree in voice. She became a copywriter for the CBS Television affiliate in Des Moines, and then a public relations writer for Columbia Records in New York. She later owned and directed The Cramer Gallery in Glen Rock, N.J. Krivin photographed many jazz musicians during the 1980s and 1990s, and published two books of her jazz photos, "25 Years of the Jazz Room at William Paterson University" and "Jazz Studies." Her jazz and doll portraits have been exhibited in group and solo shows, museums, university galleries, and jazz festivals. She was married for over 50 years to painter, musician, and educator Martin Krivin. One of the few women in the field of jazz photography, JoAnn Krivin documented the professional jazz scene from the late 1970's until the late 1990's photographing close to 700 musicians. Her works have been exhibited frequently in solo shows at festivals, museums and galleries across the country. She has served as a still photographer for New Jersey Public Television and has contributed to a variety of national jazz publications. Her book, Twenty Five Years of the Jazz Room at William Paterson University, was published in 2003. Woman artist with a feminist tinge to these photographs. Her work was exhibited at the Ben Shahn Galleries. The exhibit featured photographs of some of the jazz world’s most well-known musicians, including Sonny Rollins, Joe Williams, Art Farmer, Benny Golson, Milt Hinton, Jane Ira Bloom, and Rufus Reid in performance at the University. An exhibit of photographs that chronicles the numerous world-class jazz musicians who have performed as part of the renowned Jazz Room Series at William Paterson University during its 25-year history. The exhibit featured nearly 40 black and white photographs by JoAnn Krivin, whose husband Martin Krivin founded the Jazz Room Series during his tenure as a William Paterson professor of music. Her photos, which date back to the first Jazz Room performance in 1978, document a veritable who’s who of jazz, including saxophonists Sonny Rollins, Benny Golson and Jane Ira Bloom, vocalists Joe Williams and Vanessa Rubin, trumpeter Art Farmer, bassists Milt Hinton and Rufus Reid, and others. "Beyond the historical value of providing a visual archive of some of the greatest jazz musicians of the post-World War II era, these photos can stand on their own visually compelling merits," says Joel Lewis, a poet, essayist and critic who has written extensively on jazz. "What shines through (her) photos is an unabashed, non-politicized humanism." Lewis points to Krivin’s portrait of saxophonist Sonny Rollins as a prime example of her art. A near abstract study in the geometrics of haberdashery, Krivin captures the performer in an intense moment with his saxophone – and in a striped jacket and his trademark dark sunglasses. "Krivin certainly taps into the art of performance less than the cult of personality," Lewis explains. One of the few women in the field of jazz photography, Krivin has frequently exhibited her work at a variety of venues, including solo shows, jazz festivals, museums and university galleries. She has served as a still photographer for New Jersey Public Television projects and has contributed to a number of national jazz publications and to internationally released CD and record covers. Launched in 1978, William Paterson’s Jazz Room Series is one of the largest and most prestigious college-sponsored jazz events in the country. Performers include renowned professionals who encompass the complete spectrum of jazz, from practitioners of traditional jazz to avant-garde to bebop to swing to Afro-Latin jazz – as well as the University’s own student ensembles. The series has won numerous grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts for its innovative programming.
