Jasmine Poole is a multidisciplinary artist and photographer based in Sydney, Australia. Poole studied at the St George School of Fine Art and later at COFA University of New South Wales where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Photomedia) with Distinction. Her practice predominantly explores the act of story telling and the sociology of space and objects. Her works have been selected for inclusion in prizes including The Moran, Olive Cotton, Sydney Life and Fishers Ghost. Most recently she was awarded The Head On NSW Photographic Landscape Prize which has been acquired as part of the permanent collection at Parliament NSW.

Suburban Kingdoms (2018)
