Photography by Jaina Cipriano.


Jaina Cipriano is creating visual metaphors for emotions she has trouble defining. Without the help of Photoshop, she builds physical environments that open her subjects up to become part of something bigger. This primes the space for an authenticity that is so visceral it brings the viewer back to their own memories.

Jaina’s work takes the shape of a dream you wake up already forgetting, tasting only the vivid edges while the center dissolves.

She was recently published in GRLSQUASH, Gastronomica and The Boston Herald. Jaina just released her first short film, “You Don’t Have to Take Orders from The Moon,” a magical realism story about darkness inside and outside us.
