Award winning photography

 

Barnaby Jaco Skinner is known as a prolific artistic photographer, capturing content for a broad range of clients from British newspapers to the Chinese government, Russian ballerinas to travel magazines. Notably he is an international workshop leader, has won three government-affiliated awards for his photographic work in Asia, shot extensively in western China, and partnered with Katerina Joumana for a two year sabbatical in Vienna. This virtual place is home to some of his latest photographic work and acts as a portal for workshop students.

Sometimes he write stuff too, we are led to believe.

The links above will take you on a themed photographic tour, or browse the randomly generated galleries below for some of his archived work. More work will be uploaded throughout 2018 and beyond.

Large format contemporary art

 

“Photography comes first, but creation is a close second. In fact, one could argue they are one and the same. The foundations of my contemporary works are firmly embedded in a world of empathy, apathy, sexuality, humanity and solitude. I prioritise colour, line and shape above a clear definition of subject, letting associated texts fill in the blanks.

I initially work with analog film shot using a beater of a Nikon. Once the raw material has been captured, I move over to digital platforms, extracting my subjects and working them into a new, abstract yet defined compositions.

The texts are born out of experience; of personal loss, professional gain, social observation, questions of ethics and morals, of how and when and maybe, of quantum entanglement and buried cities in the dark of the moon. Each text is written alongside the creation of each artwork, and both develop together as a unity, an expression, a product that I am proud to call #jaco.”

 A BRAVE NEW WORLD

Dark clouds dissipate as tumultuous mountains crack at shadowed seams. Cracks form chimneys, rifts to valleys, darkness recedes afraid of this new world. The Nothing has become nothing, and with it, I something.

ON LIFE

Lifetimes of isolated incarceration stimulate luculent channels seamlessly meshing emotion to thought to reality.
A matrix of lies. Isolated. Hopeless. Paranoid.

FEAR HATE LOVE FAITH

A deep elemental connection ignites terror in us both. A terror that gives birth to mythical nouns and magical verbs, that plays out acts reserved solely for those you longed to imitate.

DEPENDENCE

Dark embers glow, a still heart forged from starlight on the eve of judgement, a once Jovian forge now broken by the will of false gods.
