Artist's Statement

Welcome! My name is Jim Baab (rhymes with cab). I am an amateur photographer, known for elevating the mundane, who has participated in and supported Somerville Open Studios' city-wide, annual visual arts celebration weekend since 2013. I have no studio and my equipment is pretty basic; yet, my experiments with light, line, and illusion have won awards and been chosen for juried exhibitions in the United States and Europe.

I am passionate about the human form, food, and geometry; and, sometimes, those themes converge. One example would be my oldest illusion from 1994: a still-life, nude portrait of a red pepper and Brussels sprout that was inspired by Edward Weston’s ‘Pepper No. 30’. 

This year, in addition to offering framed and unframed prints, I am designing and offering print-on-demand fashion, luxury accessories, and home furnishings via "Jim Baab Photo Lab" on and "ThatJimBaabGuy" on (Links via my web site below)
