Jane Evelyn Atwood was born in New York and has been living in France since 1971. She bought her first camera in 1976 and began taking pictures of a group of street prostitutes in Paris. Her work reflects a deep involvement with her subjects over long periods of time. Fascinated by people and by the idea of exclusion, she has managed to penetrate worlds that most of us do not know, or choose to ignore. She has also written ten books.

(Norsk tekst:) Jane Evelyn Atwood ble født i New York og har bodd i Frankrike siden 1971. Hun kjøpte sitt første kamera i 1976 og begynte å ta bilder av en gruppe gateprostituerte i Paris. Hennes arbeid gjenspeiler dyp involvering over lange perioder. Fascinert av mennesker og av ideen om eksklusjon, har hun klart å trenge inn i verdener som de fleste av oss ikke kjenner til, eller velger å overse. Hun har også skrevet ti bøker.
