Jessie Edwards - Thomas 

I am available for commissioning and creative work. 

I have a deep curiosity about all things human and the camera enables me to develop my understanding of everything around me. I was eighteen when I realised my obsession with photography, my Grandad was suffering with dementia and the need to capture him before he deteriorated - just one little bit more - was over powering. The camera can become your memory capacity, even when you no longer have that capacity. Since then, I have been developing my passion of people, photography and travelling.
