"Last year for my annual dance production I performed to a song called ‘Skyscraper.’ I felt a deep connection with this song since my mom had recently passed and I was rising from a dark space. People are constantly asking me, 'How are you making it through?' The answer is simple: I use my mom as motivation. Life can be unfair but we just have to push forward and remember that there are better days ahead."
Kacey Jeffers is a self-taught photographer from the Caribbean island of Nevis. In 2018, After spending 3 years living in New York City, he returned to Nevis for a year. This period was instrumental in fine-tuning the artist’s purpose. Now more than ever, he is motivated to tell stories that challenge, reinterpret, and disrupt the status quo. Kacey Jeffers offers a fresh perspective. His work merges different genres of the medium to create narratives that are authentic, sensitive, and emotional. In Uniform, his first monograph, Kacey portrays Nevisian youth in their school uniforms. The project is a true celebration of individuality, stirs up nostalgia, and offers hope for a brighter future.
