Ever wonder how photojournalists capture that one iconic moment, when the power of a simple reflection in a lens can move the human heart so deeply? Photographer and journalist Jasmine Kemp explains that we all make decisions about how to see the beauty of the world, not just with our eyes and our cameras but with our souls. Citing the Baha’i teachings, Jasmine asks her audience to move away from the selfie to the selfless, so they can frame a lasting glimpse of the beauty of God’s amazingly diverse creation.

    Thank you for sharing your wisdom through your creative eye and encouraging all of us to look for the beauty in this world. I appreciate how you said, "I try to capture the spirit of my subject and capture God's beauty within them." You are reminding all of us that we have the capacity to do the same.

    Thank you for your perspective, I learned a lot! I loved your photographs and the clear way they expressed the concepts. I'm inspired to changed the way I express what I want to say with my own photos and postings.
