Exhibition introduction by independent curator and critic Dr. Daniel Mudie Cunningham
Jamie James (1968- ) is a freelance photographer whose work is informed by the ways people connect, hold memory and culture, and find identity and place. Over 30 years, Jamie has built an extensive visual archive in collaboration with Australian LGBTIQA+ communities and our First Nations and South Sea Islander peoples. In 2018 the State Library of NSW acquired 170 photographs from Jamies’s social documentary archive for their Indigenous Acquisitions Unit.
Jamie co-produced the successful Cross Projections 2006-2013 with Roslyn Sharp and was on the Head On Photo Festival 2011-2015 selection panel. They have been a finalist in many photographic prizes, including the National Portrait Gallery, the Moran and Australian Life Photographic Prizes.
Since 1993, Jamie has documented Sydney’s queer, sex radical, gender diverse and performance communities, spanning analogue and digital shifts and crossing the millennium. A selection from this archive titled “QUEERDOM” was exhibited in Head On 2019 with trans queer writer Quinn Eades.
