Jacob’s works record the people who have lost their lives on the front line caring for the ones we love. He plans to produce an image of every NHS staff member and care worker who has lost their life during the pandemic, as a reminder for future generations of their selfless sacrifice. The images have been made through this period of lockdown, using the chlorophyll process, a completely sustainable process using natural light to burn an image onto leaves. They have been exposed for days or weeks to allow the natural process to occur. Jacob studied a BA in Photography at the University for the Creative Arts, Maidstone and an MA in Fine Art Photography at University for the Creative Arts, Canterbury.
