Friday Fry Up: Jennilee Marigomen


“I am interested in getting you to engage in looking rather than losing your attention to thoughts about what you are looking at.”

—Uta Barth. The Long Now. New York: Gregory R. Miller & Co., 2010, 324.

Based in Vancouver, self-taught photographer Jennilee Marigomen carefully communicates the quiet brilliance of her natural and man-made surroundings. The found details in her photographs—including iridescent light, geometric patterns, saturated colors, and whimsical coincidences—make her works both familiar and phenomenal, hopeful and bittersweet. Whether abstract or unambiguous, there is an undeniable viscerality to be found in Marigomen’s photographs. See more of Jennilee Marigomen’s work on her website:
