Jess Thompson

Jess Thompson is a portrait photographer who uses her camera as a tool to enhance wellbeing alongside a reflective practice. She uses her platform as a voice for issues regarding gender and mental health; of primary focus is the documentation of the body to outline and express life experiences, coping with day-to-day life and movement underneath the skin. Thompson views the body as a subject: “a canvas that gets painted through the journey of life.” A key influence of her person-centred practice is her mother, who is a nurse.
