Earning a degree at the International Center for Photography in 2005, Jessica Dimmock’s career has since bounded from strength to strength, continually showing the preternatural photographic and documentary vision that garnered her wide accolades nearly as soon as she’d begun. Her work as a director and cinematographer blends both the intimate storytelling and the visual excellence of her stills.
The Netflix documentary series she co-directed, Flint Town, was nominated for awards at IDA, Critic’s Choice and Cinema Eye Honors, and she is the recipient of numerous international awards for her photography and video work, including a 2019 Guggenheim Fellowship for film and video.
She’s received 3 World Press Photo Awards for short films, The Inge Morath Award from Magnum, the F Award for Concerned Photography from Forma and Fabrica, a 2012 Emmy Nomination for Starved for Attention, The Infinity Award for Photojournalist of the Year from the International Center of Photography, and The Kodak Award for Best Cinematography at the Hamptons International Film Festival, among a long list of others.
She is also a Sundance Edit and Story Lab Fellow, and her first feature film The Pearl (co-directed by Christopher LaMarca) was awarded the Grand Jury Prize at the Dallas International Film Festival. Her clients include HBO, The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Microsoft, The UNFPA, Aperture, Showtime and PBS.
