Diptych, Wet Cyanotype with Tumeric and Paprika

Jessie Swimeley finds great joy uncovering beauty and significance in the insignificant. Her passion for photography started at the age of six when her father handed her a camera. Growing up in Wyoming she has always had a love of rural places and their history. Jessie uses digital and alternative process photography to give voice to the abandoned places and forgotten treasures of the West.
