About me

Jake Gill is a Photographer based in London. He studied an Art & Design Foundation at the City of Bath College, followed by Photographic Arts at the University of Westminster in London. In 2019, Jake won the CSR Emerging Talent award from Travers Smith. At the surface of Jake Gill's work, he oscillates between the perimeters of fine art and fashion photography with an emphasis on the human body. The hypothesis of Jake's craft is rooted in communication and is deeply intrigued by the limits of our physical restraints. In his series Toeing The Line (2018), Jake uses the language of fashion to tap into notions of mental health, which is reflected in his conflicts with depression. Concerned with the body, posture, and garments; Jake uses these three variables to show that communication for some, is extremely difficult. Jake further suggests as we experience globalisation, communication (although easier than ever) becomes facile and our confrontational presence is lost. However, through digital notification, we become confined to emoticons to express how we feel. To be born into today's world and possess the tenacity to reject the use of a smartphone is truly an act of revolution.
