Jessica is a photojournalist currently based in Knoxville, Tenn. Photography helps her to exercise her curiosity for the world and the other people in it. It helps her to appreciate and observe small pieces of life that are easy to overlooked. She keeps coming back to photography because it helps her to understand other people’s lives and actions, and thinking that way has helped her grow as a person, something she never wants to stop. She makes photos to share that knowledge and appreciation with other people.
