Jamie E Murray’s work looks at the isolation people experience while living or working in restricted places. In his project Albatross Murray followed the daily lives of the sailors on HMS Daring as the warship sailed home from deployment in the Persian Gulf.

In his current project Folly, Murray looks at the effect incarceration has on prisoners and how they respond to being excluded from the world. Meeting with ex-prisoners, Murray weaves the stories they share with him into his series of images, offering a visual interpretation of how prison can affect an individual.
