Jamie’s work centers around the notion of storytelling. Drawing on ideas from history and folklore, he is interested in the persistence of stories and their relevance to humanity. Looking towards an expanded understanding of documentary within contemporary photography he feels it is important to engage with subjects in a number of ways, not being afraid to confront, collaborate with and record the experiences he has.
Jamie has worked on long-form bodies of work for the past five years since graduating from the Documentary Photography course at Newport, UK. These have included work looking towards the military, sports culture and incarceration. He is now finishing my MA in Photography at UWE, Bristol and also works as an associate lecturer in photography.
