Jessica Gianelli is a New York born, London based photographer. 

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.
