Jared Soares photographs community and identity. Through portraiture and longform essays he examines how sets of people relate to each other often through the lens of sports and contemporary culture. His fine art prints and books are held in the permanent collections of the Portland Art Museum, Cleveland Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Sloane Art Library at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University. Jared’s images intimately connect readers with subjects for clients such as adidas Originals, Adobe, Airbnb, Apple, The Atlantic, ELLE, The Fader, National Geographic, Nike, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Square, TIME and WIRED among others. His work has been recognized by the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize and he contributed to The Marshall Project’s 2020 investigation of K-9 units and the damage that police dogs inflict on Americans, the report earned the 2021 Pulitzer Prize, staff recognition for National Reporting. When he is not making photographs, he can be found playing tennis or walking his pet terrier, Holly. He resides in Washington, D.C. with his wife.
