Jenny Desrosiers: visual alchemist
a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.
Jenny (b. 1995) is a non-binary 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 their Afro-Caribbean background growing up in the vibrant Haitian community within the city of Boston and surrounding areas, Jenny draws from their lived experiences to create with the intention of bringing timeless Black narratives to life.
Jenny captures daily life in an empathetically raw and captivating manner by using both vivid colors and carefully curated lighting via both video motion and still 120/35mm film imagery. They explore topics such as dynamic storytelling, mundane everyday life, love, intergenerational trauma, the immigrant experience, and community in their work.
Jenny is passionate about getting more Black creatives in front of and behind the camera, and they see it as their mission to create a pathway for others in the film and fine arts spaces to fill in the void and address the lack of diversity.
