James Desser approaches his work in different ways, using varying mediums and he is a particularly skilled photographer. A playfulness is often present in Desser’s work that, though thoughtful, can often show a witty and irreverent view on a subject.
James had his first experience of curating last year as co-curator for “Venture Arts presents…” with Tom Emery at the Manchester Contemporary, 2017.
