James runs Sinamatella Productions, a Cape Town-based, independent film-making company. Over the past seven years, the company has developed a track record of taking documentary films from a seed of an idea through to big and small screens.

 
What an artist is trying to do for people is bring them closer to something, because of course art is about sharing: you wouldn’t be an artist unless you wanted to share an experience, a thought. I am constantly preoccupied with how to remove distance so that we can all come closer together, so that we can all begin to sense that we are the same, we are one.

Although he loves his work with moving images, he has fallen in love with the simplicity and elegance of storytelling through the photographic medium.

This is a showcase for his still image work.
