Jeremy Philip Knowles
Jeremy is a British artist working with photography and installation. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art Photography from Camberwell College of Art (University of the Arts London) and a Foundation Degree in Art & Design from Oaklands College of Art.
Since 2016 Jeremy has been based in Berlin, where his practice has developed into a playful photographic study of urbanism and the everyday. Jeremy’s images draw patterns and humour from the randomness and repetitive non-events that characterise the mundane within our lives – the overlooked and often unnoticed aspects of our existence that make us human.
By bringing greater prominence and visibility to the accidental, the miraculous and the comical, we are challenged by Jeremy’s projects and photo series to reconsider the weight of our daily interactions with things and people and meditate on what happens when we think nothing is happening.
Jeremy regularly exhibits his photographic and installation work between institutions in Berlin and London. His work has also been included in group shows in China, Russia and the USA.
In 2018 Jeremy was shortlisted for BLOOOM Award in Germany. In 2019 he took part in the artist-in-residence program In-Between #4 at Green Hill Gallery, Berlin, and was later shortlisted for the Signature Art Prize in London. Throughout 2020 Jeremy participated in a number of collaborative art projects - Neukölln Stories (coordinated by nomadicArt in Berlin), Tools Without Rules (Kaliningrad) and In-Between #5 (Berlin).
Earlier in 2020 Jeremy was shortlisted for the Verzasca Foto Awards in Switzerland and, more recently, awarded the ReA! Art Prize in Milan. Also in 2020, Jeremy was published in Fresh Eyes - New European Photography.
