Jacob Talbot who dis

who dis?

Jacob Talbot is a multidisciplinary artist, manipulating analogue and digital photography, extending into fine art based multi-media pieces. His work encompasses a range of photographic genres exploring both the physical and metaphysical aspects of an image. Alongside and within his photographic practise, Jacob Talbot also utilises the benefits of sculpture to allow, but not restricted to, the objectification of the material image. As a recent 1st Class Honours Graduate of BA Photography (Leeds Arts University 2021), Talbot’s Artistic career has quickly gained the attention of collectors and curators internationally.


As seen in his successful debut solo exhibition, ‘An Isolated State’, funded by Leeds Inspired, Talbot utilises interactive installation as a means to challenge the boundaries between the two mediums and engage a new audience.


During the lead up to his debut solo show ‘An Isolated State’ Talbot was awarded ‘The Signature Art Prize’. 


Since then he has gone on to commercially exhibit and sell photography and sculpture throughout art fairs in the UK, Europe, America and Asia; building up a strong client base and collectors alike.


His conceptual work has also been exhibited in multiple group exhibitions in London and Leeds, as well as having work selected for a large scale banner at Rotterdam Photo Festival. Most recently his work was part of a contemporary photographic exhibition in Seoul, South Korea.


Since 2021 Talbot has also been the Head Curator for BANG Galleries, a new branch of the long established and well respected Linda Blackstone Gallery, helping to showcase contemporary emerging artists in a highly competitive commercial setting.
