Editor’s Note: Recently, we were contacted by Jasmine Stirling with an invitation to view her new photography website. We loved what we saw – in particular her use of space, light, color and social commentary. There’s shadow-play from above, a shoeless shoe-peddler, some Hitchcockian birds, striking facades, bold tones and a tongue-in-cheek wind sock. Please enjoy these photographs, taken from coast to coast and across the globe.

The first six photos are from the “Order” series, the next four are from the “Color” series and the final photo is from the “Take a Bite” series. Our featured image is from the “Africa” series.

Jasmine Stirling has been an obsessive photographer since she was a kid shooting blurry shots of the woods, her feet, and a stranger’s dog with her plastic kodak camera.
It is a meditative practice, play, the bringing together of art and life – as in a good essay, a beautiful meal or an artful documentary. A way in which to dive more deeply into everyday experience.
Jasmine has studied formally under fine art and commercial photographers, recently as well as in the days when the work required darkrooms and lightboxes, and has shown her work in the US and Japan.
She is also an author, filmmaker and education reformer. You can find more of her work here.
