My name is Jamie Johnson, and I am a British curator, writer, researcher and artist based in London. I am currently studying for a Masters degree in Culture, Criticism and Curation at Central Saint Martins (UAL) and am a first-class graduate of BA(Hons) Photography at Falmouth University. I work in a interdisciplinary nature, moving between different medias in a unique manner to suit what is required at any given time. Having been formally trained as a photographer, I often look to visual mediums to express concisely the outputs of my research.
My MA thesis was concerned with the role of trauma in photography, and how photography can be both a form of catharsis and a form of suppression for those who have undergone traumatic experience in their lives, and subsequently how the representation of trauma is enacted when the artworks in question are elevated into a curatorial setting. I am looking, in the near future, to enact further research between traumatic experience and artistic practice.
In a professional context I have gained first hand curatorial experience at Thelma Hulbert Gallery, and have worked on many other projects (both photographic and curatorial) in London, Cornwall and digitally.
