This Fashion Institute of Technology Photographer Finds Art in Mathematicians’ Chalkboards


“I realized over the years that math is a very creative process,” says photographer Jessica Wynne, a tenured professor at New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology. That realization is one of many she reached while working on her latest project: Do Not Erase, a collection of 100 photos depicting a variety of chalkboards used by mathematicians. Set to be published by Princeton University Press in the fall of 2020, the endeavor took Wynne all around the globe for a year and a half.
