Jacob Alexander Wildfong is originally from western Michigan, and currently resides in New York, New York, working in his studied fields of photography and graphic design - having recently graduated from SCAD in Savannah, GA. His personal aesthetic taste for vacancy and negative space is prevalent in both his photographic and design work.

While Jacob was still enrolled, he was taken under the wing of world famous artist and photographer, Raphael Mazzucco. He was originally taken in as an Artist Assistant, but soon became Mazzucco’s Alternative Process Printer. Jacob has been assisting Mazzucco with the production of art pieces for over a three year period, with the production of artwork that has been shown in Art South Hampton, Art Basel, and The Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery.

Although Jacob's early professional experience weighs heavily in fine art, he has since switched gears with taking on very corporate projects for companies such as Clinique, Abercrombie & Fitch, Under Armour, Deutsche Bank, and many others.
