About Me

Contributing Photographer 2Jenna Pope is an award-winning freelance photographer and digital media strategist living in New York City.

At the age of 17, Jenna purchased her first professional camera after being interested in photography ever since she was a young child. She taught herself photography through trial and error, which allowed her to develop her own style and technique. Jenna then began doing photo shoots and weddings in her small hometown of Edgerton, Wisconsin. She transitioned to documentary photography at the beginning of 2011 when she found herself at the Wisconsin State Capitol during monumental protests with a camera in her hands, and then moved to New York City in 2012 in order to further her photography career.

Since then, Jenna has traveled to places such as Washington, D.C.; Red Lake, Minnesota; Tampa, Florida; Chicago, Illinois; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Istanbul, Turkey, to document protests and social justice movements. Some events she has covered are the Wisconsin protests, Occupy Wall Street, the 2012 Republican National Convention protests, the 2012 Democratic National Convention protests, the NATO protests in Chicago, Hurricane Sandy and the aftermath, and the Gezi Park protests in Istanbul, Turkey.

Jenna’s photos have been featured on three book covers – Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces, Unintimidated: Wisconsin Sings Truth to Power, and Mohawk Interrupts: Political Life Across The Borders of Settler States. Her work has also been featured on VICE News, The Village Voice, The Real News Network, The Progressive, on  the cover of a Transport Workers Union magazine, ROAR Magazine, Dangerous Minds, and other websites and publications.

  2. ..hmm…i like you!

    we need more people like you….we desperately need more people like you…
    one thing thats been bugging me for years and years…and not only becuase ive lost several close friends from the disease….ive been reading and hearing that there IS a cure for cancer…but it has been suppressed by the big players….meaning obviously that who will buy their cancer-suppressing drugs(notice is say suppressing, not curing), if a cure was announced….it would mean the end of the GSKs and others of this world…..seeing that you have the spunk, can you do something about this at all?
