Zenobia Nicole, also known as Jpeg Zen, has been photographing since the age of 14. Zen started shooting because at the time, she wasn’t in the best space and needed something to bring her out of her depression. She did her first shoot with a couple of friends and since then, she fell in love with the art of photography. Zenobia notes that she still struggles everyday with who she is and what she does. However, when she picks up a camera, she knows exactly where she wants to be and what she wants to do for the rest of her life. The satisfaction of knowing she made someone feel beautiful or simply happy by looking at her work makes what she does all the better.
