Jamie Hawkesworth

Russell & Robert meet leading documentary and fashion photographer Jamie Hawkesworth. We discuss Milton Avery, forensic photography, the power of natural light, a dedication to analogue cameras, taking Kate Moss’ portrait in India and documenting landscapes of Antarctica. We learn about Jamie’s early project 'Preston Bus Station' and explore his later collaborations with JW Anderson for Loewe and exhibitions at The Hepworth Wakefield and Huis Marseille, Amsterdam; the latter showing a mix of his personal as well as his commercial photography. Jamie reveals his admiration for photographers William Christenberry, Jem Southam & William Eggleston and for land artist Michael Heizer - who invited Jamie to take his portrait in the Nevada desert at Heizer’s mythical, monumental, as-yet-unseen 'City' (an ongoing land artwork that began in 1972 and will finally be publicly opened in 2020).
