It is photography itself that creates the illusion of innocence. Its ironies of frozen narrative lend to its subjects an apparent unawareness that they will change or die. It is the future they are innocent of. Fifty years on we look at them with the godly knowledge of how they turned out after all – who they married, the date of their death – with no thought for who will one day be holding photographs of us.”                                                                                                                                                                                             - Black Dogs, Ian McEwan

Jemima is a freelance photographer who specialises in capturing performance and the live event. She is also a performance maker, which gives her unique insight on composition. A natural observer, Jemima has the ability to focus on documenting something honest in the environments she is immersed in, seeking to capture the essence of the event. Her eyes - what would she do without them? She takes great responsibility in knowing that she creates documents to which the present will be remembered. 

Jemima is interested in developing the role of the photographer in live performance and studying the relationship between live culture and visual literacy. She has had two solo exhibitions in Singapore and Leeds, been published in a couple of places and is currently photographer in residence at Exeunt Magazine. A selection from her Performance | Life Archive blog is currently being exhibited at Ziferblat London.
