Chicago, IL, United States
For over twelve years as a professional photographer, I’ve split my time between freelancing in Chicago for clients like The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Crain’s, The Comer Family Foundation, HSBC, Coca-Cola, Jim Beam, PR Newswire, GCYC, Northwestern University and the University of Chicago, and traveling the world—five times to India in the last five years, as well as Ethiopia, Colombia, Jordan, Brazil, Tonga and many more—for Operation Smile and for personal projects.
What’s with the bold, strange dichotomy? It’s just who I am.
I’m Jasmin, one of the very only half-Wisconsinite, half-Indians to ever come out of the Dairy State (certainly the only one to have waitressed at Kenosha’s The Brat Stop), and I grew up equally steeped in both unique, dynamic cultures. It formed the approach to shooting pictures and telling stories that I’ve taken ever since:
Search for life’s striking contrasts … and its beautiful unexpected similarities.
