Jessica Cardelucci is an award-winning, self-taught photographer from California. Through her exploration of the West Coast and lifelong companionship with horses, her images encourage the viewer to experience the same intimate connection to her subjects that she felt when she took these images.

She lets her subjects catch her eye, finding unique perspectives amongst commonly documented themes. Using her monochrome, minimalist approach, Jessica creates some of the finest intimate black and white images. Her signature style is a testament to the artistic quality of her work.

Jessica received a BFA from Chapman University majoring in Graphic Design. Her images have received recognition in the IPA Int'l Photography Awards, Black & White Spider Awards, and ND Awards. Jessica's Photographs have been exhibited at New Museum Los Gatos (NUMU), Community Art Project’s gallery in Wells Fargo Bank Laguna Beach, John Wayne International Airport, and with the National Park Service at Point Reyes National Seashore.

After spending her career creating physical prints, Jessica discovered the technology of the blockchain and non-fungible tokens, also known as NFTs, in early 2021. Combining her love of art and tech, she chose to release her images as digital tokens on the Ethereum blockchain, becoming an early adopter of this new frontier. Jessica has been highly respected for her efforts to elevate women in the industry and for being an advocate encouraging other artists to own their own custom smart contracts. Her images have been collected by one of the industry’s most respected collectors 33NFT, sold on SuperRare, the industry's top curated platform, and are available on the secondary market.
