In Photos: Portraits by photographer Jalani Morgan.
It’s always strange and a bit surreal to me when I look at a photograph of strangers and somehow manage to feel as though the person behind the lens has so aptly managed to capture the essence of those pictured. Perhaps it’s a bit of romanticism on my part, but I can’t help but feel that way when looking at the work of photographer Jalani Morgan. What may on the surface seem to be a simple portrait becomes an intensifying three-way relationship between the subject, the photographer and viewer. A two-dimensional image is brought to life and in a matter of seconds, upon gazing at Morgan’s portraits, I have no option but to feel a close connection to the unknown faces captured by his lens.
Jalani Morgan is a portrait, fine art and documentary photographer.
Born in Toronto, Ontario, and raised in Scarborough. He was influenced by his parents’ teachings of the African Diasporas and politics and through that is interjected into his art.
He produces work that investigates the representation from the African diaspora.
Currently he is studying at York University in Toronto obtaining his degree in Anthropology and African Studies.

WHO DOESNT DESERVE YOUR LOVE
im allergic to penicillin
this is me every time i go to the doctor.
she forgets everytime.gotta love your nurses, people.
I think there’s a Facebook group that made t-shirts along the lines of “Be kind to nurses. They keep doctors from killing you.” My mom was a nurse for over 40 years.
I think hospital nurses deserve more respect for sure (at my PCP’s office, the nurse forgets shit about me all the time, but my doctor is awesome).
