Jasmine has been born in the wrong body. Ten years ago she changed gender. She poses for her own pictures. She uses these images in order to create some structure in the mishmash of events, actions, and feelings from her own life, surroundings and what people say about her. This may present ever-changing Jasmines, depending on the context. The word ‘persona’ also means ‘mask’, and there is a reason for this. People wear different masks in different settings. She has mainly chosen to capture the themes in theatrical visuals.

Jasmine de Vries has a passion for photography. She photographs since her early youth. She joined the Photo Academy in Amsterdam to make from her passion her profession. In may 2017 she graduated the Photo academy.

Her preference is mainly on theatrical visuals scenes, staged, portrait and fashion photography. In her portraits she knows to capture other sides of people she photograph.
