Nomad by Russell James

Nomad by Russell James

Created by renowned contemporary art and fashion photographer Russell James, NOMAD TWO WORLDS began as James’ highly personal attempt to understand and interpret, through photography, the clash of ancient and modern cultures he witnessed growing up in Australia. Deeply inspired by the Prime Minister of Australia’s 2008 “Apology” to its Indigenous people – for their profound grief, suffering and loss caused by past governments’ culturally destructive policies and actions – James began collaborating with a number of Indigenous Australian artists, whom each painted their own evocative interpretations and cultural “story” onto his images.

Russell James is defined by his fine-art photography series and his works have been exhibited in leading galleries around the world. His limited editions are highly sought after by many of the world’s most prominent collectors.

Over the past two decades, Australian born photographer Russell James’ images have become synonymous with provocative, unique perspectives of many of the most prominent people of our time in the worlds of entertainment, fashion and beauty. His works have appeared in leading publications such as Vogue, W, American Photo and French Photo, Marie Claire, GQ, and Sports Illustrated, a vast array of international journals, and ten fine art books and five solo books by world leading art book publisher teNeues Publications. In August 2007, the Artist Russell Jameswas awarded the Hasselblad Masters Award, and in 2009 Russell joined the prestigious ranks of Irving Penn and Helmut Newton as a resident artist of Camera Work, the world’s leading gallery for contemporary photography and vintage master works.
