Statement

Jazmine Russell is a psychologist, writer, photographer, jazz-inspired singer/songwriter and self-taught keyboardist from Sacramento, California. She has been in involved in several vocal jazz ensembles and musical theater productions in her hometown, and since moving to New York, has begun writing her own songs and performing at local community events, student-run shows, and open mics. Jazmine was recently hired as a preschool music/dance teacher at Kidville Williamsburg and runs a social art project to help bring attention to ideas and art made by adult survivors of child abuse.

After living in Prague, Czech Republic for 5 months she picked up black-and-white analog photography, focusing on bridges across the world and semi-nude subjects as her primary interests. Although she studies social-cognitive research and philosophy of science at New York University by day, her academic interests always influence her art. Utilizing her understanding of cultural psychology and the ways in which people shape their intentional realities, Jazmine is currently working on an interdisciplinary photography/philosophy project: an existential inquiry into subject-object and body-mind relations. She seeks to understand and photographically capture the embodiment of how people across the world comprehend their role in constructing and percieveing their reality and how this has an impact on their interpretations of meaning and values.
