Kacey Jeffers makes photographs that borrow the sensibilities of fashion photography to tell stories about the world around him. Jeffers' vulnerable and personal series, Every Day is Another Chance, was made upon his return to Nevis from New York City in 2018; it was shortlisted for the prestigious 2019 Sony World Photography Award. That project led to his 2020 series Uniform, which presents views of subtle rebellion, playfulness, and the perseverance of youth. I invited Alexandra Gooding, an emerging Toronto-based arts writer and researcher originally from the Caribbean, to join me in interviewing Kacey about his photography practice.
