Sajato's solo exhibit
The Pineapple Room at the exclusive Round Hill Hotel and Villas was home to skyline shots of New York City, the freedom tower shots, puddles of reflections, the sunset that Jamaica is known for, and mirrors in the clouds.
Tagged Jahtoworks, art lovers packed the intimate room on Wednesday night for the unveiling of Jamerican photographer, Sajato Jarrett's solo exhibition.
Jarrett, the son of five-time cancer survivor, Patricia Wright, herself an artist, had those in attendance in awe, inspiring even those without an inkling of talent in photography, proving that an eye for beauty and stories was enough to set the stage.
"As soon as I walked in and saw his Mirrors in the Clouds, I said to myself, 'This is it'", said real estate guru, Nicola Delapenha.
For Jarrett, that is exactly what he wanted his pictures to do, "grab you, evoke emotions". And that it did.
With just under three years of photography under his belt, Jarrett, who attended Belair High in Mandeville, Manchester, and currently works for Apple in New York, said his love affair with the art started when he returned to Jamaica two and a half years ago to compete in a 10K run.
"A friend said I should take photos because I have an eye," he recalled.
Today, he never goes anywhere without his camera. He captures everything that communicates with his inner being. His mother told TODAY that he has an addiction to puddles, and this was evidenced in a number of his works on show.
His next show is in two weeks in New York. He also has plans for an exhibit in Kingston.
There is no need to ask if he did well on Wednesday night. Several of his paintings had the red marking beneath them, which equated to the word 'Sold'.
