jamie pearl's photography makes us cry

Jamie Pearl is a 19 year old photographer based in Seattle.

She mostly shoots portraiture and is fascinated by the notion that no two portraits are the same due to the fact that no two faces are the same. Jamie loves film, digital, and analogue and owns over 22 cameras! 

Her work is f***ing awesome, and we're excited for you to see it. Actually, it's so wonderful and beautiful and human it makes us want to cry. There's a lot of work here, and we know you'll resonate with a lot of it. Keep this tab open on your laptop to look at when you need a muse, or need a visual refresher in the midst of a hectic day. Dig in loves!

(above) Location: Various. Call me crazy, but my favorite thing to do is walk around cities and photograph strangers. I always end up meeting interesting people with stunning looks and taking photographs that remind me why I am so in love with portraiture.

(above)  Location: Seattle, WA. Inspired by Laney Flood, one of the most talented artists I know, I decided to photographs Laney and then overlay her drawings from her sketch book.

(above) Location: Seattle, WA. This shoot was inspired by the incredibly talented Irving Penn, one of my favorite photographers. I aimed to mimic his style of bold, up-close and personal type shots. 

(above) Location: Various. Film is my first love. Taking on a class on it my junior year of high school, I was immediately enthralled by it. Since then I’ve used B&W film mostly to capture portraiture of those around me.
