Jessann Reccee – Photographer

I went to Jamaica to document my family history and witness daily life through my father’s eyes. Inspired by Bell Hooks’ essay “In Our Glory” and the snapshots of photographers like Liz Johnson Arthur and Jamel Shabazz, I wanted to highlight the unseen and showcase a culture that is often misrepresented in Western media. I was also privileged enough to learn more about how my family history ties into the history of the island itself.
