James’ photographic work is characteristically informed by elements of cinema, documentary and fashion-editorial. He is drawn towards the use of natural lighting and considered framing to make portrait and landscape images, in which interaction between subject, space and material occur. Subtle thematic and visual motifs are shown consistently in his work, with the ambition of encouraging readerly engagement with his images. 

Currently studying BA Photography at Manchester School of Art.
