Jessica Lin is a Toronto-based photographer and artist with a love of travel and adventure. After almost a decade in the commercial, editorial and event photography worlds, in 2008 Jessica decided to spend a few weeks traveling in France with her camera to rediscover her love of photography. She not only found a passion for travel and photographing new and different places, but also met the man who would become her husband and co-adventurer.
Trips to Ireland, England, Scotland, Mexico, Cuba, Spain, Italy, Japan, Miami, and the Azores islands have allowed her to build up a library of images capturing these other worlds.
Years of using Photoshop for her clients now pay off as Jessica uses those skills to turn her images into surreal layers, and turn places into fantasies. She created her first collection in 2012 using images from her trip to France.
In her most recent collection, Jessica explores landscapes closer to home, using photographs from many trips to Algonquin Park as well as two road trips out to the Maritime provinces. The results are vast landscapes with magical skies – images that feel at once very familiar and very mysterious. Selected pieces from this series are currently in the Sales & Rental collection at the Art Gallery of Ontario, as well as the gift boutique of the Art Gallery of Hamilton.
My artwork is created by using elements from images I've taken around the world, and sometimes in my own backyard or kitchen. The resulting pieces are layers of my memories of trips, hikes, beaches, cities, sunsets, and great meals shared with loved ones and strangers alike. I've developed a unique process of presenting the final image to be hung on your wall - each piece takes about a month to produce the finished product (not including the 17+ years of experience, decade of traveling and photographing, and months that it takes to design and edit the artwork!).
Imagination. Guts. Faith. Love.
