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 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.
Capturing daily life in a raw and captivating manner by using both color theory and carefully curated lighting via video motion, and still 120/35mm film imagery, Jenny explores topics such as storytelling, everyday life, love, the Haitian Diaspora, intergenerational trauma, religion, the immigrant experience, and the importance of community in their work.
