Originally from Ireland, after moving to London to study at the Royal College of Art, James Parkin ended up staying.
James’s most recent work, Folding News, available here on Open Doors, takes as its starting point, the surfeit of imagery available in free London newspapers. Of which a staggering, one million plus are distributed every weekday in London.
Using his own and others imagery: deconstruction of photographic genres, returning to historical events and tactile interventions with the surface of the photograph are central to what he does.
Folding News began in 2015. It recently exhibited at And Gallery (London) and The Glucksman (Ireland). Each fold serves as an index of an emerging present.
Below is a selection from James’s ongoing series Folding News.
Each work is Unique and date stamped.
