Jeremy James

JJ has spent his life working in developing countries with cattle and horses, and once, with Rendili, Masai, Samburu and Somali drovers walked a herd of 86 camels from Somalia to Tanzania. In the 1990s, during the last stages of the Balkan Wars, he ran the State Lipizzaner Stud in Bosnia. He has worked with horses of burden in economically deprived communities across the world: from the rubbish dumps of Mexico city to the gharry horses of Ethiopia, from the horses of the Hmong people of Northern Vietnam, the working horses of the Fijian tropical interior, the tonga horses of Lahore, to the village horses of Eastern Turkey and of Morocco. He has travelled on horseback, writes about horses although from a different perspective from the norm. He has contributed material to broadsheets, magazines, television, film and radio embracing within his interests, art, history, vernacular architecture and more abstract matters, usually with some rural slant. Having had the great good fortune to have been born and brought up in Kenya and having worked with rural peoples and their animals all around the world he has developed his own outlook on man's association with the natural world, which both informs and is reflected in, his work.
