A film by Eric Minh Swenson. (Film number one-thousand two-hundred and nine in the series.)
Jessie’s photography draws on traditions of fine art and photojournalism, with a passion for social documentary and anthropology. Her work is influenced by new environments, artists, people and cultures, and illumined by the notion of unseen moments and overlooked details in the magic of the everyday. She LOVES traveling, storytelling, capturing life’s greatest moments and the magic of showing up in a new place waiting to be discovered. With a camera always over her shoulder, Jessie can be found chasing organic natural light wherever she goes…
She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Photography & Art History from Brown University and a Masters in Photojournalism from the London College of Communication. Her work has been exhibited internationally at Photo Independent in Los Angeles, The Joze Collective in London, and FotoFever in Paris, and featured for FreePeople, Wallpaper Magazine, Aspen Magazine, The BBC, Photographers without Borders, FeatureShoot, and PDN.
