Jamil McGinnis is a Turkish American filmmaker and photographer based in Brooklyn, New York. Growing up in a multicultural home and spending most of his childhood in Germany, cultural diversity was something that stuck with him from a young age.
Jamil's upbringing and heritage inspires many of his work, seeking for truth and relatability between all his subjects. He allows his initial fascination about the subjects influence what will be captured and finds his way in through the composition, what he calls a "curated rawness."
