Jeff Kauffman is a photographic artist working in Austin, Texas. He grew up in rural Pennsylvania during a time when people communicated using rotary telephones. After earning a computer science degree from Penn State University, Jeff moved to Washington DC -- and later to Austin TX – to build a career in software engineering. His photography interests began at Washington School of Photography and continued with Santa Fe Workshops. He has been developing his photography while also working as a technology consultant. 

Jeff's photography shows an interpretive view of his subjects, presenting lines, structure, character, and sometimes weirdness, in compelling compositions. His work has appeared world-wide in publications, art festivals, and commercial venues, along with his own magazine project called Showable Art Magazine. And, as a point of closure, Jeff now uses a smartphone.
At the core of each of my works is a visual drama, perhaps a suspension of time and energy, an unusual arrangement of lines and curves, or a portrayal of a compelling character. To me, everything is interesting; everything inspires a story. What happened here? What will happen next? What am I looking at? How does this make me feel? I imagine those questions when I’m creating photographs.
I hope my work will inspire viewers to imagine their own stories.
