If you described Shaniqwa Jarvis’s work in one word, it would be portraiture. But the New York–based photographer’s work is far from limited, and it’s consistently raw. In some ways she’s a fashion darling — she’s worked with artist Damien Hirst and punk god Malcolm McLaren for Supreme, Paper, and Teen Vogue. Her photographs often expose hidden moments, like young girls waiting on a running track, or a woman showing her double mastectomy scars.

Today at Art Basel Miami, Jarvis is releasing a self-titled retrospective book. She’s publishing it now because she has the “money and confidence” to do it, she told the Cut. The 160-page collection includes images from her archive and a foreword by her friend and fellow photographer Ryan McGinley, whom Jarvis met while studying at Parsons. Click through to see nine of Jarvis’s favorite photos, from a self-portrait in Paris to a cheeky shot in Mykonos. And of course, Cardi B.
