Cora James was born and raised in Hackney, London in 1992 and currently resides in Edinburgh. In 2015 James graduated with a First Class Honours in BA Photography from Edinburgh College of Art.

James’ practice focuses on the everyday; a collective and obsessive process in which she wanders the streets continually in search for what remains unseen.

‘It is the quotidian that has always fascinated me: the small, insignificant things and moments of daily life.’

Cora James was awarded the Andrew Grant Bequest Scholarship in June 2015 and was one of six selected by Malcolm Dickson of Street Level Photoworks for the Source Photographic Review’s Graduate Profile.

Kaleidoscope: a toy consisting of a tube containing mirrors and pieces of coloured glass or paper, whose reflections produce changing patterns when the tube is rotated.

These photographs, from James’ body of work Kaleidoscope, belong as part of a series of fourteen books; separated by colour.
