In ‘Someone’ Jasmine Clarke explores the concepts of memory and migration.
Jasmine Clarke is a 25 year old photographer born (and based) in Brooklyn, New York. She graduated from Bard College with a BA in Photography in 2018. Her practice focuses on identity, memory, and family history. Her work has been shown at Howard Greenberg Gallery, Photoville, Photo Vogue Festival, and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta.
“These photos are a meditation on a place. They were taken in 2019 and early 2020 in Simone, a small town on the coast of Senegal. My work plays with the tension between real and imagined worlds in an attempt to explore themes of identity, memory, and migration. Through the interplay of light and shadow, these images explore the uncanniness in our familiar world” says Jasmine Clarke.
