Jackie Dives explores themes of identity and womanhood through the medium of digital and analog photography. Self-taught, Dives began taking photographs as a way to deal with her experience living with anxiety and depression. While working as a doula she began photographing women giving birth and this led to her interest in documenting social justice issues through the lens of the female gaze. Inspired by photographers Nan Goldin, Francesca Woodman, and Mary Ellen Mark, Dives' photographs are diaristic, vulnerable, and sometimes confrontational. Her work has been published internationally, including in Canadian Geographic, The Tyee, VICE, The Globe and Mail, and Maclean's.
