ames Dunn first discovered his love for photography while at Durham University. Originally beginning as an outlet of creativity from a science-based degree, it quickly became more of an obsession and an occupation. Since then James has gone on to have his photography featured in Cotswold Life, National Student, World News Network and Tibet Post International.
While at University, James Dunn began to learn the basics of photography. Becoming the photography editor of the student newspaper and photographing students, the stunning Durham town and people he interviewed during his time working there. This included, David Cameron, David Nicholls, Nick Clegg and Bill Bryson to name but a few.
After graduation, James took his photography further, swapping his native Cotswolds for the beauty of India. While working as a journalist there, James was able to combine his love for the country as well as his passion for photography. James lived and worked in Dharamsala, along side Tibetans living in Exile. He has long since seen this community as his inspiration, since first working there as an English teacher at the age of 17. While working there he had the chance to photograph His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama and these photographs of him hang in offices in Dharamsala.
While the stunning beauty of the Himalayas and the incredible Tibetan people will always be and inspiration, the Cotswolds has always remained his muse and it was where James held his first exhibition of his work in early 2012.
