Jenny  (b. 1995) is a non-binary Haitian American cinematographer and photographer. Raised and watered in Boston, MA, they are currently based in Los Angeles, CA.

With their artistry being directly influenced by their Afro-Caribbean background growing up in the vibrant Haitian community within Boston, Jenny creates with the intention of bringing timeless Black narratives to life. 

Using a combination of video motion and 120/35mm film, Jenny aims to tell stories portraying everyday life in a raw, empathetic, and honest and captivating manner. Their work highlights the complexities and subtleties of Blackness as well as the portrayal of the Black experience exploring subjects such as the mundane everyday, intergenerational trauma, immigration, love, sexuality, religion, gender, and community. 

They are passionate about getting BIPOC folx in front of and behind the camera, and wants to help clear a path for other BIPOC creatives in both Hollywood and the art world.
