Jessie Chaney’s ongoing series Memories of a Space seems to be a portent of our current global crises. Abandoned buildings in desolate locations now may lure us as potential safe havens, if only we hadn’t already trashed them. Graffiti proclaiming ‘where love lives’, crudely updated to ‘where love lived’, is a cautionary quip for all of us. Another wall bears the question ‘looking for home?’, a query that encapsulates a sense of uncertainly that is shared across countries, borders and cultures. Where do we turn for a safe haven in times of trouble; times in which we are dealing with threats to humanity that are not defined by language or politics?

About Jessie Chaney
Jessie’s photography draws on traditions of fine art and photojournalism, with a passion for documentary and anthropology. Her work is influenced by the presence within abandoned spaces, details of lives once lived, capturing an energy that still lingers, while searching for love in unexpected places and seeing beauty in everything. She is inspired by new environments, artists, people and cultures, and illumined by the notion of unseen moments and overlooked details in the magic of the everyday. With a camera always over her shoulder, Jessie can be found chasing natural light wherever she goes.
