Jasmine Jones
Photographer and filmmaker currently based in Hartford, Connecticut. Founder and publisher of Aislin Magazine. Creative Coordinator for SPIN Magazine. My work focuses on documenting daily life, overlooked moments, and ignored communities. My goal is to showcase those who should be seen and heard and to use my art as an outlet for them to tell their own stories.
