Jessica won the bursary by submitting her CV and a pdf portfolio of 5-6 images, which provided a flavour of her work. Jessica had this to say about her work: “My work is led by a sympathetic use of available light to create visually captivating documentary still life and portrait images.
“Approaching subjects sensitively and using the camera as an alternative way of seeing and interpreting reality is important to my work. With a love and knowledge of both traditional and digital photographic techniques, I am interested in the concept of aftermath, both visually and psychologically. My most resent work Moorland Fire has involved collecting and observing objects to create future evidence. Through an earlier project Memory, childhood memories have been recorded in visual form by photographing my grandparents.”
