James F. Hunkin (1958-)

Artist of 58 portraits
James F. Hunkin was born in Manchester in 1958 and is a self-taught photographer. He has been taking portrait photographs since 1987. Two of his major projects have resulted in important photographic monographs. Changing Faces: A Decade at the Royal National Theatre (1997) was the summation of six years photographing people involved with the theatre. His portraits in Faces of Faith (1997) reflected the contemporary state of multi-faith Britain. Hunkin's work was first acquired for the National Portrait Gallery's collection in 1991.
