Jamie’s recent projects include ‘The Books that Made Us’ which was inspired by the Booker Prize held in Doncaster.

Within his work Jamie’s priority is to be respectful towards who he is photographing and is passionate about making sure “people like themselves a bit more after they’ve seen their

photograph”.

Having lived in Doncaster his entire life Jamie wants to shine a light on the communities and variety of people who live in the area.

Jamie said: “Art has that power to make people self-reflect and examine themselves and find those things to celebrate and be happy about.”
