Though best known for her portraits of famous people, Jacobi also experimented with abstraction in her “photogenics.”  She described making these photograms (photographs made without a camera) as drawing on photo-sensitized paper by moving the light source. While photography is most often used to document the external world, Jacobi’s abstractions are a vehicle for imagination.
