Photography by Jimi Jo Meretsky Friedman

Jimi Jo Meretsky Friedman, born in Detroit, Michigan, is a Midwest girl at heart.  Surrounded by the arts, her parents supported her interest to dabble in a variety of mediums and encouraged her to follow her passion.  After participating in many Arts programs, including summers spent at the Cranbrook Kingswood School and Interlochen Center for the Arts, as well as attending advanced High School art courses at CASA (Center for Advanced Studies and the Arts,) Jimi Jo decided to focus her studies on a major in Photography. She was classically trained in Fine Art Black and White Photography at Eastern Michigan University, where she also double majored in Telecommunications and Film.
