Jerri Zbiral was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1948. Her family left in 1949, going first to a refugee camp in Germany, then settling in Norway. The family moved to Canada in 1954, where she grew up. She became a naturalized American citizen in 2000. Jerri received a Master of Fine Arts degree in photography in 1974 from the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, New York. From she directed several community photography programs in Chicago, notably the Public Art Workshop on Chicago’s west side and the Community Arts Center of the Uptown Center Hull House. There she worked as arts administrator, teacher, and director of a special photography program for the hearing impaired.
Since 1980 she has been a partner in The Collected Image, exhibiting vintage and contemporary photography. She has received numerous grants for her own photography and to fund community programs. She has had group and one-person exhibitions of her work since 1972. Subjects include a documentation of a Cree village in Fort George, Quebec; Laotian Hmong refugees in Chicago; and in 2011 she chronicled a month-long trip to India.
Most recently, Jerri directed and produced an award winning half hour documentary film: Never Turning Back, The World of Peggy Lipschutz. Prior to that, with Alan Teller, she co-Produced In the Shadow of Memory: The Legacy of Lidice, based on the story of her mother's survival of the Nazi destruction of her Czech village and the continuing impact of the tragedy on her own life. Both In the Shadow of Memory and Never Turning Back have been screened at film festivals around the world, winning numerous awards. She has also worked as post-production manager on two additional documentary films: Picture Man, the Poetry of Photographer Milton Rogovin, and Be Filled With the Spirit.
She is currently at work with her husband Alan Teller on a photography project in India, based on a serendipitous find of a box of anonymous photos made in that country in 1945. They received a Fulbright grant in 2013-2014 for this work.
