Jagdish Patel

Resident Artist
STUDIO A4

Jagdish is Midlands born artist, of Gujarati origin, living and working in the Midlands and London. He graduated from De Montfort University with a MA Photography and continues to develop a photography based arts practice, using a variety of visual media.

Jagdish’s work uses visual practice to explore the relationships between history, activism and lived experience. His work is created in collaboration with his subjects, and his works tries to ensure that the process of making art is an empowering process for the participant. Over the past few years he has undertaken projects with people from the Gypsy community in Derbyshire and Lincolnshire, Punjabi, former steelworkers, running pubs in the Black Country, Portuguese farm workers in Lincolnshire, people with mental ill health, and victims of racial violence from across the country.

Alongside his arts practice, Jagdish also works with the anti-racist charity, the Monitoring Group, as an educator with the Nottingham Photographers’ Hub.
