Drawing on ideas from history, he is interested in the persistence of stories and their relevance to humanity. Looking towards the notion 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 received a BA(Hons) in Documentary Photography from the University of Newport, and an MA in Photography from UWE, Bristol. He also works on commissions and as an associate lecturer.
