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. Jamie has received a BA (Hons) in Documentary Photography from the University of Newport, South Wales, and an MA in Photography from UWE, Bristol.

Jamie is a Lecturer at Boomsatsuma and UWE Bristol and is a QEST scholar for craft within photography and printmaking. He 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 Financial Times, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Hot Potato and Port Magazine. His first book, Folly, is due to be released in May 2023.
