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.
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.
