Jess Bonham is a still-life photographer that captures stunning images for luxury brands and editorials. Often collaborating with set designers, she uses a variety of materials to create compositions that are sculptural and akin to an art installation. Her photos have illustrated subjects such as death, fetishes, and solitude. In the piece above, she captures the spirit of independence to accompany an article in Evening Standard Magazine about modern attitudes on being alone. In Bonham’s own words, “The article suggests that doing things alone, such as dining and going to the cinema, have now come to represent more of an empowered, independent spirit, than loneliness.”
From the series entitled “She Said…”, created with set designer Anna Lomax, this piece is part of “a voyeuristic exploration of fetishes and the goings on behind closed doors.”
From the series entitled “Fool’s Paradise”, created with set designer Miren Maranon, which was inspired by their intrigue with “ideas of shifting realities and the creation of fantasy and illusory happiness”. For this project, they crafted environments that are meant to inspire “uplifting feelings through deceptively artificial means”.
From the series entitled “Life After Death”, a project in collaboration with Lightning + Kinglyface for The Wellcome Trust. This series uses toilet paper to illustrate death and how a human body decomposes over time.
From the series entitled “Water Features”, another collaboration with Anna Lomax. Aiming to craft mysterious and dreamlike scenery, this piece was crafted for a series inspired by “architectural and landscape water features”.
