Recent graduate Jeremy Philip Knowles is a British lens-based artist. He holds a degree in Fine Art Photography from Camberwell College of Art (University of the Arts London) and a foundation diploma 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 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, and his work has also been included in group shows in China and the USA. He is represented by DegreeArt, an online art gallery based in the UK. Editions of Jeremy’s works are also available through Democratic Gallery (Sweden). In 2018 Jeremy was shortlisted for BLOOOM Award. In 2019 he was shortlisted for the Signature Art Prize in London. Earlier in 2019 Jeremy was selected for an artist residency at Green Hill Gallery in Berlin. This year Jeremy has been shortlisted for the Verzasca Foto Awards in Switzerland. Later in 2020 Jeremy will publish the first book edition of his photography with Replika Publishing (Berlin).
