KEEP IT DIRTY, vol. a., “Filth” (2016)
Jazmin Urrea is currently working in Los Angeles and pursuing her MFA in Photography and Media at CalArts.
Raised in Compton for 9 years before residing in Watts, Urrea attended CSU Long Beach where she obtained a BFA in Photography with a Minor in Human Resources. Urrea’s work is known for having “her face on everything,” because she turns the camera on herself. Her images are not self-portraits, rather she uses herself as a vessel to challenge cultural pressures Latina women face. These events illuminate themes of identity, race, and gender through the use of exaggerated stereotypes in her work.
