Jack Latham
Sugar Paper Theories


The project traces an infamous true crime case in Iceland. Known as the Reykjavik Confessions, it involved the testimonies of six people, who confessed to two murders they had no apparent memory of. Latham employed a mix of archival images, ephemera and his own photographs to convey the sinister ambience of a horrific, yet hazy collective memory.


Jack is a freelance photographer, born and raised in Wales, now living and working in Brighton. He is a graduate from the Documentary Photography course at Newport University. His work is presented in a mixture of large format photography and digital film making and has been realised in several self-published books. Jack has exhibited internationally and in December 2015 was the recipient of the Bar-Tur Photobook Award for his work titled: Sugar Paper Theories.
