Untitled, from the series Folly © Jamie Murray, 2019

Our next guest editor is Jamie Murray, whose work centres around storytelling and narrative. Jamie will share his series Folly over the next week.

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.
