MY NAME IS JIANNA COUSIN AND J. COUSIN PHOTOGRAPHY IS MY BRAND.


I left my hometown of Wichita, Kansas to pursue a career in photojournalism. As a student of Clark Atlanta University, I have found many passions. My interests consist of photography, social justice, and public service. I have been able to use my art to shine light on various communities. My artwork takes a view of social, political, and cultural issues and flips them into a depiction of celebration. I have a mission of profoundly and beautifully displaying communities that are often left in the shadows.


I seek to show all people of marginalized communities that they are beautiful and worthy of being subjects in art that is not always linked to their oppression. Often focusing on members of the Black community, or people of color in general, the work gives voice and representation to those who are systematically silenced.
