Jayne Hinds Bidaut (American, 1965- )

Fort Worth-native Jayne Hinds Bidaut earned a B.F.A. in photography from Texas Christian University in 1989. Her work "Animaleries," photographs of caged, pet shop animals, was produced between 1993 and 1997. Bidaut's unique ferrotype images were inspired by a 1996 visit to a Connecticut flea market, where she purchased an insect specimen from a dealer who invited her to photograph his personal collection. She chose to use the nineteenth-century tintype process, which gave an historical and voyeuristic quality to her images. Bidaut since has used this method for a series of nudes, artists' hands, and small skeletons. Her monograph, Tintypes, was published in 1999.
