James Whitmore is a Swedish Photographer based in Stockholm. After having graduated from Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm with a BA in Fine Arts in Visual Communication in 2009 he started assisting fashion Photographer Julia Hetta. Experimenting with analogue photography he found his distinctive character and today his work is exclusively analogue.
James Whitmore aims to capture a certain air of poetry, still allowing the viewer to create her own discursive interpretation of the imagery. By working with natural light he has developed his ability to make use of light and shadows to enhance composition and emotional content of his photographs. Not concerned with perfection or traditional beauty, he rather wishes to evoke a sense of longing, mystery and vulnerability.
