James Needham

New York, NY

"There is a limited amount of space within a viewfinder and what you choose to fill it with says a lot about you and what you were feeling during that time. It’s like a Rorschach test that you create yourself."
I started pursuing a style of photography based on the urban landscape paintings of Jeffrey Smart, Edward Hopper, Rick Amor and Ben Mclaughlin. A single figure or vehicle is dwarfed by the towering structures of the city, a visual style sometimes referred to as urban loneliness. But I like to think my use of colour and image construction produces a joyful bent on that title. The focus of my work varies a lot but the aesthetic is the connecting tissue. I’m interested in line and shape and colour, those are my subject.
