Jesse Carlén



Jesse Carlén is a 17 year old high school student in Scranton, Pennsylvania pursuing photography. Having grown up outside of a small city in Pennsylvania, his surroundings has allowed his mind to develop a creative imagination. This is reflected in his dreamy, colorful landscapes of the old, worn-out town he lives in. To escape the downsides of living in a small town, he often ventures two hours south to Philadelphia where he has formed various friendships with other creative teens. Jesse is part of the Instagram Youth Collective Program. He and a core group of other teen creators work with Instagram to encourage and strengthen relationships between Instagram and creator communities.
