James Sparshatt is a British photographic artist. He was a winner of the 2008 International Exhibition at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado, USA, was shortlisted for the 2009 Sony World Photographic Awards and was a finalist in the World Photography Gala awards in 2010. His print “Soweto Strings” was auctioned at Sotheby’s in New York in November 2011.
His work dramatically captures the vibrancy and emotional intensity of life. His images of the music and dance from the Latin world; the flamenco of Spain, tango from Argentina, salsa from the streets of Havana, are full of movement and emotion.
He has been exhibited in New York, Texas, London, Spain, Cuba and across the UK. His 2006 exhibition at the Royal National Theatre was described in the Sunday Telegraph as “a dazzling collection of black and white images...”.
A selection of images are produced as palladium platinum prints by specialist platinum printers Paul and Max Caffell of 31 Studio. 31 Studio also work with David Bailey, the estate of Henri Lartigue and Sebastião Salgado amongst many other photographic luminaries.
