Nikon has been my camera & gear brand of choice since the beginning, so I was honoured to be interviewed by them. Thanks Nikon Asia!
"There is a certain zen that comes with JENNILEE MARIGOMEN. Her works are familiar but ethereal. Her eyes have evolved to see the beauty in the mundane around her, allowing her to get lost in her own senses. She reveals the iridescent nature of our everyday.
Some photographers travel to faraway places or put themselves in extreme situations to get up close with the extraordinary. Not Jennilee Marigomen. Her passion lies in investigating everyday phenomena in search of beauty in our ordinary surroundings.
“My work is about evoking a visceral feeling. I think that a lot of my photos capture a familiar, yet specific truth that is common to everyone. Something that you can look back to and feel at that moment in time, everywhere and everyday.”
But with a focus on the “ordinary”, how does one go about finding the inspiration that comes through so significantly in the final photo? Jennilee says she finds motivation in the ability to exercise awareness through her senses: “Getting lost in experiencing and reveling in my environment is as fulfilling to me as the finished product.”
