About__IH - IreneRoxanneHess

As a child, before the digital age, I frequently carried around a tape recorder, using audio cassettes to capture my world. I was, and remain, a steadfast documentarian. Born and raised in NYC, it was summer trips to Puerto Rico that created my deep appreciation and respect for the natural world.

I spent my early career as a producer and editor at the PBS series Nature. During that time, I  learned photography. My work has been published in The New York Times, The Brooklyn Paper, PDX Parent magazine, Transportation Alternatives magazine and more. I've also shot photos for book covers, movie posters, and a live panel discussion (at the Brooklyn Museum of Art) on Women and Street Art.

I now live with my family in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I shoot photos for local magazines, edit videos for indie filmmakers, and make tiny, strange quasi-documentaries of my own.
