Jessica Gianelli

Jessica Gianelli is a London and New York based visual artist working primarily with photography.

Her work exists as a continuous examination of how history, place, memory, and experience come together to inform identity.

She is drawn to the stories of women, and the largely unseen, observing the ways in which stifled identities have evolved as a result of their surroundings, and exploring how the photographic process might foster empathy, reclamation, and freedom for the subject, the viewer, and the self.
