James Ip is a self-taught artist who works to create photographs that intrigue and spark the imagination. He regards street photography to be a natural extension of his training as a journalist and story-teller.
Street and documentary photography also allow James to turn a critical eye to contemporary social issues through photo essays and projects. Through his work, he explores themes of human isolation and interaction, as well as how we relate to our surroundings, both conceptual and physical. In doing so, James exposes his viewers to important questions about people, and our sense of community and belonging.
