Used Ladies Torsos
Women have been at the center of art from time immemorial. Objectified beyond anything else. Our perception of beauty has been shaped by how artist see the female form. How the world sees women is often not shaped by women themselves but by those looking to keep them as possessions.
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. Jessie received her BA in Photography from the University of Oregon and is the President of the Treasure Valley Artists Alliance. Her work is held in private collections in the US, Europe, and Australia. Jessie’s work is shown regularly throughout the Treasure Valley in curated and juried exhibitions. She currently resides in Boise, Idaho with her partner Joel and Inky the cat.
