Photographer Focus: Jacqueline Harriet

Jacqueline's photos are cool, crisp, and captivating. As a fellow New Yorker, she's surrounded by inspiration and by people, which is her favorite subject to shoot. She's got a definite point of view, and has a undeniable talent for capturing her subjects emotions, which translate clearly to the viewer. Her photos are perfectly planned and executed, and we can't stop staring. Can't wait to see what comes next from Jacqueline (a short film, perhaps?). See more of her work here and on Flickr, and read a quick Q&A with her below.
