PhotographyJD And The Jewels, 2020

My work focuses on artist James Donnelly’s (JD) story, his home was illegally searched by police in 2003 in relation to missing royal jewels.

His home and mental health has been destroyed due to this injustice and he has received no compensation to date for damages to his home and life. My project documents JD in his environment and gives an insight into his famous painted home on London Road, Glasgow. His reputation and life has been destroyed by this accusation and JD fears his injustice will never fully be resolved, he has become a recluse since this incident. He fears he will never be free from his wrongful accused crime of a jewel thief.
