Jessica Gershen

Jessica Gershen has been taking photographs since she was a junior in high school. She has always been interested in human behavior and that’s where her interest was born, taking inspiration from artists like Diane Arbus especially, but she also found that she had a unique way of viewing composition and framing and her work began to grow in more directions than just photographing people. Currently, she resides in New York City where the life and styles of the city inspire and influence her work.

Jessica went to Rochester Institute of Technology for her first two years of college. At RIT she majored in fine arts photography, however, the structured approach and stale environment of that university did not suit her. She put off so much by the experience, in fact, that she took a different turn in her career path altogether and made photography her hobby in order to maintain her love for it. Now, living in New York City, she allows inspiration to feed her everyday experiences and she is so happy to be able to share them with as many people as she can.
