Jessie was a teacher
when a camera changed her life:
while traditional women
were content with being wives,
she used her sharp eye
and ability to hustle,
of corset and bustle,
to seek the newsworthy
Instead of portraits of
well-bred young women,
she photographed a murder trial,
slums and local prison.

Kerry says it’s time to strike a pose with December’s photographic challenge, which comes with a wide angle and any filter of our choosing.
