Born in Horsham, Sussex, Jim Naughten received a scholarship to study painting at Lancing College, before studying photography at the Arts University College at Bournemouth. Early on, he began to work on portraits shot in Namibia and India. He further develops this research with Re-enactors, introducing the notion of storytelling.

 

RE-ENACTORS

A Leutenant-Colonel on the 101st Airborne, a Red Cross nurse, a German soldier, all these portraits photographed with neutral backgrounds, expressionless, staring into a distant horizon, speak to the past, the History, the fantasy and the game. For two years, Jim Naughten has attended « re-enactments » - life size role-plays, in which participants recreate and re-enact a historical period or a military event.

The work has received a number of awards in England and has been exhibited in London (National Portrait Gallery), New York and Milan. Re-enactors presented at the Espace Quai1 is the first exhibition of this artist in Switzerland.

In 2011, Jim Naughten participated to the 8th International Photography Award in Vevey, organised by the Festival Images.

Quai1 joins the FLAC (Lausanne Foundation for Contemporary Art) Action: a special edition of a photograph by Jim Naughten will be produced in ten copies, amongst them five will be on sale at CHF 200.- from May 2nd on the exhibition space.
