On her evolution through photography, and holding sacred space for her creative life while raising three girls.
Part 1 of 2: It’s been exactly a year to the day since I had this conversation with Azzari Jarrett and what a heck of a year it’s been! As you may know, Azzarri Jarrett is a memory keeper and photographer, but she also is now a designer of her own line of memory keeping products (more about this in part 2!), and a New York Times featured scrapbooker, whose story was in the article called last summer called Scrapbooking isn’t just for White People in the August 7th paper. She is also on the One Little Word team of teachers this year with Ali Edwards.
In this first original episode from March 27th, 2020, Azzari was part of The Everyday Artist Season 2 focus on photography, and she talked with us about how her relationship with photography has evolved corresponding with the birth of each of her three daughters. Azzari generously shares her creative identity with us here, as well as some tips for trying film photography, and gives everyone encouragement to adamantly carve space in our lives for our own creative work as self-preservation no matter the season we are in. I’m so thankful to have her voice here as part of the podcast.
