In 2006, James Griffioen walked away from a career as a successful securities lawyer at a large San Francisco law firm and moved his family to downtown Detroit, where he no longer practices law but instead spends his days taking care of his two children and taking photographs. He publishes a blog about his life in Detroit called Sweet Juniper.
His photos have appeared in Harper's, Vice, Time, Fortune, New York, Re:public (Sweden), Landscape Architecture and many other publications. He has been featured on America Public Media’s The Story, CBC’s Arts Program Q, NPR’s On the Media and CNN as well as The Chicago Tribune, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. His photos have appeared for sale on Jen Bekman Projects' 20x200 website and he is represented by the David Weinberg Gallery in Chicago, Illinois.
