Wonder Years

Photography by Jesse Valley


Jesse ValleyThe photographer behind the large banner images throughout the exhibition and on this website is Jesse Valley. We chose Jesse's work for Wonder Years because of his skill in capturing images that illustrate the relationships essential to healthy early childhood development.

Jesse says one of his earliest memories is of seeing a photograph of his sister running down a hill: 2 years old, frozen in mid-stride, arms outstretched beneath a blue summer sky, with a smile of pure joy. That photo opened Jesse's eyes to the magic of photography, and began a lifelong obsession with documenting the world around him.
