Jason Larkin (1979) is a British photographer internationally recognised for his long-term social documentary projects and environmental portraiture. His immersive process and slow approach allow for comprehensive bodies of work that reveal and frame important social, economic and political issues. His work is often concerned with contextualising present realities through historical legacies. After completing his MA in 2007, Larkin moved to Egypt. His first body of work, Past Perfect, a meditation on the way museums present history to us, was widely recognised with awards, including the PDN New Portraiture Award in 2011. Cairo Divided, a unique and freely distributed bilingual newspaper explored the capital’s rapidly-mutating urban landscape. Exhibitions have included the Brighton Photo Biennial 2012, the Hereford Photography Festival Commission in 2011.
