Mr James Kerwin

Born in 1982 into a British family, James lived in Norwich, England until January of 2019. He has committed the last ten years to documenting the beauty of forsaken, dilapidated, or forgotten architectural wonders; in addition, he has started exploring ruins, heritage spaces, and deserted areas. He started taking architectural photos in late 2013, and it took him into hidden corners and abandoned areas of cities, all over the world. 

‘Decadence,’ his first series, began his investigation into deserted buildings. He spent almost ten years building up a comprehensive portfolio that features some of the world’s most fascinating places. His approach to photography focuses on capturing clear lines and vibrant color palettes in the moment, then enhancing the photos with modern post-processing methods. 

Numerous international competitions have recognised his work and in 2017 it won both the ND Awards and the Chromatic Colour Awards in the Architecture category. He was placed second in the International Photography of the Year competition’s Architecture category in March 2018. In the exterior category, his 2019 photo ‘Circle of Trust,’ taken in Beirut, Lebanon, was shortlisted for the 2021 Architectural Photographer of the Year award. 

He debuted “Fabrica – A Journey Into Decay” and “Abandoned Lebanon” – published by Jonglez, in the autumn of 2021. He has been a Pro Partner for Benro tripods since 2017 and was an ambassador for Tenba Camera Bags for some time. He held an affiliation with 5.11 Tactical, who helped him out with luggage and clothing during 2019. 

Photography and travel go hand in hand. He had traveled throughout Europe extensively before he started taking pictures. He first became interested in photography in 2009, ten months into his time in Melbourne, Australia. He was set to head to the bright lights of Hong Kong when he went to a small camera store and bought a Panasonic Lumix LX3. Three weeks later, he was shooting the light trail images that he had shot only a few days earlier, standing in the dark on a bridge in Hong Kong. 

His journeys in pursuit of new experiences have been countless since he first picked up a camera. As a result, in 2019 he decided to base himself permanently outside of the UK and started a photography adventure tour company, first in Tbilisi, Georgia. But as he developed it, his artistic journey went on, and he moved to Istanbul, Türkiye – at the beginning of 2022. 

His portfolio shows that travel is a key component of his photographic storytelling. His curiosity about various cuisines, textures, colors, and cultures inspires him to travel to new places. His steadfast passion for photography and love of travel inspire him to conduct thorough research and arrange all the necessary logistics so that he can take his camera to some truly unique places.
