Jay Chesterman holds a Bachelor of Science (1995) from Morningside College. He states that he mostly photographs when he is travelling because "It seems to be the only time I can slow down enough to observe the unique things in life." He mostly concentrates on culture; the pastimes and subsistence of people. He looks for subject matter in everyday occurrences and uses his camera to capture the found art that exists all around us. Chesterman says that "art exists everywhere; one only has to be aware."
