Jackson Bowley and beauty that goes beyond makeup

MIRIAM DOUBLE

Jackson Bowley says about himself:

I graduated from Central Saint Martins with a BA Honours in Culture, Criticism and Curation. My course took a holistic approach to the wider arts and cultural affairs of both contemporary and past practises. A heavily theoretical course with a focus on writing, research and independent study, I have been able to refine my writing style throughout my time on the course, gain in-depth knowledge on topics spanning from fine art, geo-politics, advertising and social theory, and developing crucial team work and independent skills.”

About ‘Color Me Bad’:

“I feel that I approach makeup from quite an outsiders perspective, so I don’t really see it as a tool to enhance somebody’s beauty but to exaggerate somebody’s personality or to create vast characters,” says London-based photographer Jackson Bowley.

Pulling character out of his subjects is a particularly keen skill of Jackson’s, whose portraits defy conventional beauty poses, cramming exuberance into tight crops. It’s because of these crops, that he pays so much attention to expression and mood.
