People and interaction form the basis of Jasmeen's work. Her works are interventionist by nature and use a range of media from photography, video installation,  sound, performance and the blog.

Jasmeen photographs almost 'anything'- tangibly ranging from children, family, weddings, and the city streets to collaborative projects such as the ongoing one with her grandmother- Indri, and Birth Control (2002) where a group of young 'heterosexual' boys in Leicester were photographed in women's garments.
