Bill Jacobson is well known as one of the early artist photographers who began to use an out of focus aesthetic in the 1980s for expressive purposes. He first received major public attention with the exhibition of the Interim Photographs at the Grey Art Gallery, New York University while at the same time appearing in many gallery group exhibitions in 1993. These shadowy pale portraits were intended to evoke the sense of loss and faded memory associated with the AIDS epidemic, although, as in all of Jacobson's work his subjects were selected from among friends who he photographs in his studio. These pictures are also about the futility of capturing human likeness in portraiture.

Bill Jacobson's blurry pictures experiment with a disorientation. Gorgeous and painterly like Gerhard Richter canvases, his photos of fuzzy New York City street scenes tease our eyes: There's a sense each image stands on the brink of resolution -- perhaps if you gave it just a few more seconds the focus would tighten. Instead, we remain perpetually on the edge of satisfaction. Which is an exciting -- if frustrating -- place to be. The Washington Post , 9/4/2003, p. Jacobson began to work in color around 2000, and moved out of the studio for much of his work. In his usual style, the imagery is blurred mimicking the imprecise recall of memory and the shadowy details that play along its edges. Colors are rich; the soft borders of all objects bring the back and foregrounds into tight alignment, flattening and further distancing viewers from grasping the details. Much of Jacobson's early work referenced the AIDS epidemic; the blurred portraits evoked a sense of loss that is an equally appropriate response to this new imagery of New York City; Jacobson's more recent color work, shot on the streets of New York, emphasizes presence rather than loss. Yet still, the lack of clarity speaks to the fragility, and tenuousness, of life itself.
