James is a practising artist with a diverse practice that originated in drawing, sculpture and traditional wet photography, but is currently focused upon ideas and opportunities presented by digital image making (both still and moving).
James' current practice employs multi-layered still and moving digital images to visually ‘encapsulate’ the landscapes passed through during journeys. This body of work is (in part) concerned with how art (and especially contemporary photography) depicts a contemporary ‘landscape’.
An important element in James’ practice has, and continues to include education, and pedagogy. He is committed to ideas such as lifelong learning and the relevance, impact and significance of arts education.
