John started his career in the early 1990s with attention to the different languages of documentary photography, focusing on how specific communities form, shift and develop.Read more
He now splits his time between shooting personal projects, teaching at various Universities and shooting features and portraiture for a range of magazines, charities, and design agencies. We love his sharp, focused photographs that seemingly capture a split-second moment in time.
John’s monograph, Love, Power, Sacrifice (published by Dewi Lewis, Manchester), documented the Jesus Army over twenty years and peers into a microcosm of a fanatical religion. His most recent book; English Journey (published by B&W studio, Leeds) was a 4-year photographic travelogue across England in the footsteps of Bradford author J.B.Priestley. The work was shown in exhibitions across the UK and Europe and the book has sold across three continents since its publication.
We’ve been working with John Angerson since 2021.
