James Foley presents a new series of photographic works exploring contemporary themes of American life including politics, race and beauty.






Preview Evening Wednesday 6th February from 6pm – 8pm all welcome.

James Foley presents a new series of photographic works which takes direct inspiration from the Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) song of the same name, while that song tackles the very relevant theme of racism in America, his images tackle a variety of topics ranging from race to police stereotypes, political issues to beauty standards. This series also engages basic stereotyping to give an outsiders perspective on the country.

James is a professional contemporary fine art and narrative photographer who makes work exclusively with a single light setup creating dynamic light and shadow and embraces a cinematic documentary style.
