Jamie Murray


Jamie Murray’s photographic work centres around storytelling. 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.

He is currently undertaking a series of long-form works interrogating the institutions that exist within the framework of our society such as prisons, the military and the police. Alongside this he is also collaborating with writers and artists to create a large body of work, made up of short visual stories that attempt to reckon with questions of the human, animal, and wilderness.

Jamie (b. 1992) has received a BA (Hons) in Documentary Photography from the University of Newport, South Wales, and an MA in Photography from UWE, Bristol. For the past five years Jamie has been lecturer in photography and is a QEST scholar for craft within photography and printmaking, has been exhibited at the Martin Parr Foundation, RPS and festivals including Format and Manifesta 12. His work has also been featured in Abridged magazine, The British Journal of Photography and has received commissions from clients such as the The Financial Times, Süddeutsche Zeitung and Port Magazine. His first book, Folly, was released in May 2023.
