Jenny Desrosiers: visual alchemist
a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.
Jenny (b. 1995) is a Haitian-American cinematographer and fine art photographer. Having been raised and watered in Boston MA, and given a chance to blossom in Los Angeles CA they are currently rooted in Brooklyn NY.
With their visual artistry being directly influenced by both their spirituality, and Afro-Caribbean background growing up in the vibrant Haitian community within the city of Boston, Jenny draws from their lived experiences to create with the intention of bringing timeless Black narratives to life.
Capturing daily life in a raw and captivating manner by using the art of storytelling, color theory, interesting angles, and carefully curated lighting, Jenny explores topics such as spirituality, the Black psychological landscape, love, the Haitian Diaspora, intergenerational trauma, religion, the immigrant experience, and the importance of community, in their work.
