LIFE THROUGH MY LENS
IN CONVERSATION WITH JASON SHIPLEY
Photography by Jason Shipley
Interview by Karin Svadlenak Gomez
Jason Shipley is a passionate British documentary photographer from Kingston upon Hull. He finds inspiration in the people he meets and their struggles, which he often documents in long-term series. Jason shared a story with us in the Magazine about British miners and how the miner strikes of the 1980s have affected their lives. His photographs have been featured in such renowned places as the British Museum. Jason's life is filled with photography - full time. We took this opportunity to ask him about it.
“Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
