James Sparshatt Prints
James Sparshatt’s work dramatically captures the vibrancy and emotional intensity of life. Many of his images are
of the music and dance of the Latin world, the flamenco of Spain, tango from Argentina, salsa from the streets of
Havana. His colour images are full of movement and life, his black and white of emotion.
He has been exhibited in New York, Texas, London, Spain, Cuba and across the UK. His work has been sold at Art Chicago, Palm Beach International Art Fair, Slick (Paris) as well as fairs in New York, London, Amsterdam, Brussels and Dublin. His 2006 exhibition at the Royal National Theatre was described in the
Sunday Telegraph as “a dazzling collection of black and white images…”.
James’ first book, Cuba Land of Spirit, was published in October 2006.
A small selection of images are also now being produced as palladium platinum prints by specialist platinum printers
Paul and Max Caffell of 31 Studio. 31 Studio also work with David Bailey, Sebastião Salgado and the estate of Henri Lartigue.
James was a winner of the 2008 International Exhibition at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado, USA,
was shortlisted for the 2009 Sony World Photographic Awards and was a finalist in the World Photography Gala
awards in 2010.
