The eerie, yet hopeful nature of the photographs of Jennilee Marigomen encapsulates the intrigue that lies beneath each shot. The world's small and seemingly insignificant details attract her lens, which sheds a unique light on them and brings them to life. The moments remind her viewers that it is the small things that make up the massive world in which people live, and whether it is through the eyes of human subjects or nature's physical objects, she tells a deeply subjective and emotional story through each click of the shutter. The emerging Vancouver photog is spoken of highly in the artistic world, as her ability to evoke raw emotion through objects is unmatched even by veteran filmmakers.

Graham Kolbeins, a writer and art critic who is interested in artists of any medium whose art provides "startling insights and unnerving humor," summarizes the mystique of Marigomen's photos perfectly: "Whether or not people are physically present in Marigomen’s images, each one is marked by a ghostly trace of humanity."

Implications - Photography and art is most appealing to viewers when it broadens their global perspective through intriguing aesthetic and interesting stories. Artists share their alternative views of the world not through words, but through imagery that evokes emotion in viewers.
