Jessie Dinan is a photographic artist, based in Melbourne, Australia.
She studied Visual Arts at Latrobe University, majoring in Printmaking, where she came to love the creative process of making an image.
She had the opportunity to relocate to New York City for 3 years. It was there she found herself wandering the streets with a 35mm camera, photographing the energy of the city, and the diversity of its people.
Returning back to Australia she has continued her love for street photography, spending time travelling the world and striving to make an image better than the last.
She works with film, developing her negatives by hand, and creating her images through various darkroom techniques.
The work she makes is her way of looking and reacting to the world, Its everyday moments, human interactions, and way of life.
