Philip Jamoulis Jameson
Photography is part of my spiritual journey… I want to leave something for my children and grand children and great grandchildren to look at my work and get into my brain and my heart. – Philip Jamoulis Jameson
The son of Greek immigrants, Philip Jamoulis Jameson was born in 1930, in Fall River, Massachusetts, and his parents stressed the importance of education early on. Jameson’s first passion was medicine. He became a radiologist, pioneering in radiotherapy in Fall River. His second passion was photography: he sees a relation between the interpretation of minute details in both his radiology and photography. Jameson attended workshops with Fred Picker in Vermont and in the Southwest, the latter area becoming a favorite subject for his large-scale landscape photographs. His work has been exhibited nationally and is included in the collections of many institutions.
His feature and video interview were published in the 2011-2012 issue of the Networks Project which featured Rhode Island based Artists across a broad spectrum of media and interests.
About the Artist: Philip Jamoulis Jameson
Philip has two great passions in his life, medicine and photography. Dr. Philip Jameson, MD is a board certified radiologist who’s interest in photography developed in high school. In the process of introducing his children to photography he rekindled his own passion for making images and set up a home darkroom. A black & white film photographer, his camera of choice is an 8×10 field camera. Composition, pre-visualization and patience play important roles in his process. His quest to capture his emotional response to the landscape often requires hours of set up in the field and waiting for the light. This adventure is often followed by hours in the darkroom reliving the experience to realize a large scale print that conveys the emotions he experienced in the field.
