James Loftus


I engineer and mutate instruments associated with art, science, architecture and ritual. Positioning my practice at a notional point of convergence between these disciplines.

I deploy these seeing machines to survey the city’s dark matter of neglected marginal spaces and more recently the pristine geometry of regeneration projects.

This process re-examines the intimate co-evolution of optical technology and architectural space.

Currently, I make and use pinhole cameras but I am not a photographer. Rather, I am an artist who uses the manifold nature of photography as both tool and material.

I am following an intuition that the disparate and often arcane precedents of photography conjoin at an obscure but meaningful point of origin. I believe the rediscovery of this singularity will help us to understand and improve the volumes we inhabit.
