Propeller Member Since 2017
Jack Wayne’s background as a Sociologist influences his photographic images of people as individuals and in social situations. He looks for the paradoxical in society and often finds images that invite examination and exploration of our individual and collective lives.
Jack’s first solo exhibition, ‘Personal’ was presented at the Propeller Gallery in June 2017. Jack has exhibited in a number of group exhibitions in addition to his yearly Propeller shows. His Human Remains book was published in October, 2020. He also lectures widely on topics of interest.
The images are seldom posed, although I have conversations with many of the people I photograph. In recent years I have focussed on street photography broadly understood. I include In this category beach/water/people scenes in a variety of settings around the world. In the broader vistas, individuals are indistinct and the colour, movement and social milieu of the setting are more easily seen. In close up images—on the water or on land—we experience more intimate life.
