Jamie E. Murray

Jamie E. Murray is a photographer based in south west England. He received a BA in Documentary Photography from the University of Newport in 2014 and is now studying towards his MA at University of West of England, Bristol. His work predominantly looks at various aspects of institutions, individualism, and story-telling in relation to contemporary society and has been exhibited and published internationally.

Jamie is spending time with the Royal Navy away on deployment photographing within the ships he travels on. This body of work, Albatross, captures the ambience of these ships, affected greatly by the physical and psychological conditions of the crew. Moving forward he is also photographing his time spent with individuals who have spent extended periods of their lives incarcerated to gain an understanding of life inside prison.

Albatross

These images were taken on the HMS Daring whilst the warship and her crew sailed home from active deployment. The ship travelled back from the Persian Gulf via the Black Sea and the Mediterranean. Sailing back from conflict and unsafe waters there was a feeling somewhere between tiredness and resilience, at once romantic and foreboding, a quiet discordant ambience that ran through the sailors, soldiers and their ship, waiting to get home.
