Jamie Hawkesworth


Jamie Hawkesworth was born in 1987 in Suffolk, England. He graduated from the University of Lancashire in 2009 with a BA in Photography. After being introduced to photography while studying forensic science he embraced the medium to create nuanced and empathetic portrayals of the architecture and people of England. His Preston Bus Station photographs and short film were made by Hawkesworth as a member of the collective Preston is My Paris, exhibited as a site-specific work and recently published as book, Preston Bus Station (Dashwood, 2017). His approach to photography is grounded in the subtle, elegiac and playful heritage of British documentary photography. Hawkesworth brings his finely-tuned capacities to both observe and choreograph authentic engagements with his subjects into his commercial work. His characterful editorial commissions have been published in Acne Paper, AnOther Magazine, Double, i-D, LOVE, Man About Town, Self ServiceT: The New York Times Style Magazine, American VogueBritish Vogue, Vogue Italia, Vogue Paris, W, and WSJ. Magazine. He has also created highly original and innovative campaigns and catalogues for Alexander McQueen, J.W.Anderson, Loewe, Marni, Miu Miu and Tiffany & Co.
