Photography for Kelli Jai, is like slipping in and out of human consciousness; taking glimpses at the unknown, and capturing what is hidden behind the veil. As a photographer, Kelli Jai’s aim is to tell the truth, & there is nothing as true as nature. But, Human nature has become saturated in artificiality, our truths often becoming lost. Through her photographs, Kelli Jai wants to be able to uncover the layers that keep our human nature hidden. Kelli Jai draws inspiration from photographers that embody what she strives towards in picture making; artists like Roy DeCarava, Carrie Mae Weems, and Lee Friedlander whose style of photography embodies the beauty, humor, and spontaneity of the world.
