Jake Chessum

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

How could anyone take a refreshingly new photo of a group of people who have already been immortalised from every possible angle, at 24-frames-per-second, displaying every conceivable “emotion,” in any location you can think of? But those who pass in front of Jake Chessum’s lens just long enough for their shiny veneer to suddenly start absorbing that light that inexplicably shines from them, are revealed as a little more intimate, I think, and a whole lot more real. This Croydon boy done-good has a huge back catalogue of portraits but also something of a keen eye when it comes to spaces sans humans which are just as compelling.
