about

A fine art photographer, Jessica Kalmar is known for her evocative black and white images that show fragments of details in intimate landscapes; often using the less sophisticated types of cameras, and sometimes adding paint or embroidering specific areas on the photographs. She develops and prints her own black and white work in a customized darkroom at home. Kalmar’s work has been exhibited in the Mid-Atlantic and East Coast regions, and can be found in public collections that include Pittsburgh Center for the Arts Shop. She received the Jefferson Award in 2011 for her volunteer work at a day treatment center for adults with developmental disabilities and behavioral health challenges. She has been a guest speaker and instructor of photography in southern Ohio and the Pittsburgh area. Kalmar was born in Oregon and grew up in Ohio with parents who encouraged traveling and trying new things. Directly after high school graduation she joined the United States Navy and served four years in the Pacific Fleet. After an amazing experience of hard work and foreign adventures, she started her education and received a BS from Kent State University, a Professional Certificate in photography from Rockport College in Maine, and a MFA from Ohio University. She now resides in rural south west Pennsylvania with her courageous husband, plump cat, and various wild animals.
