James Sebright

Born in 1972 - United Kingdom


James Sebright studied Photography at Newcastle College, Newcastle upon Tyne. He graduated with huge critical acclaim and was shortlisted for the Fujifilm Student Photographer of the Year Award in 2009.
His commissioned work most recently includes illustrations for “Wildscapes in Children's Literature', Anna Jorgensen and Richard Keenan, Routledge Publishing, 2012.

"As a photographer, I work within the broad context and tradition of the landscape, be it rural or urban. In particular, I am interested in the inter-relationship between humans and their environment; that which we create and alter, and that which in turn alters us. Whilst my work crosses the boundaries between documentary and fine art photography, I would prefer to describe myself as a humanist photographer; I believe that photographs can speak of things that where words fail, and can communicate those things to a wider audience in an eloquent and beautiful form.

Much of my work is created in places far afield such as China, Japan, Syria and Morocco. I was a photographer before I even picked up a camera, poring over copies of the National Geographic as a boy; I was curious and wanted to know about the world I live in and those others in it. This ethic still runs through my work; honesty, integrity and interest. That said, I also work in my own country and find the English an endless source of curiosity and interest."
