Jason Houge was first introduced to photography when he borrowed his mother’s 110 Kodak camera in the third grade to take pictures of his friends at school. Today, Houge's work often focuses on religious, cultural and political topics. He has documented religious life within one of New York's Hassidic Jewish communities, protesting against the loss of worker's rights in Wisconsin, Occupy Chicago, homelessness and issues relating to healthcare for the poor.
Houge has been published by NPR, the New York Times LENS Blog, Slate Magazine’s BEHOLD Photo Blog, BURN Magazine, Resource Magazine and FeatureShoot. He has exhibited with the Humble Arts Foundation, the South Street Seaport Museum in New York, NY, and the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay, WI.
