Jack Mulqueeney was born in Huntington Beach California in 1965. He is the youngest of four boys and the Mulqueeney family moved north to the Bay Area in 1971 and settled in Foster City in 1972. Jack graduated from San Mateo High School in 1983 and completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology at Arizona State University in 1989. He completed his M.B.A. at the University of Phoenix in 1998 and has worked in the Technology sector for over 20 years. He currently works in an Engineering organization for VCE.
He began to experiment with Black and White Photography while at Arizona State in 1986. But it was a trip to Italy, France and England in 1994 where Jack realized a love of black and white photography. That one trip ignited a spark and a love of travel and capturing “real life” of places and of people from all around the world. He has traveled to over 20 countries and continues to explore new places whenever the opportunity presents itself. His earlier work tends to be static images of buildings and “things that don’t move” but his later work is more tuned to “real life and photo journalism.” He’s been published in the German Magazine ‘Mare’ and has had numerous displays and shows in the Bay Area. By having a career that is outside photography, Jack is able to focus and capture images that might not have ‘commercial value,’ but are images and stories that he feels are important and needs to be seen.
Currently twenty three of his images are on display at Ashley’s Café in San Francisco.
