Selected Works

Jack attended the University of Portsmouth, where he graduated with a First Class Honors and an internationally recognized project which was immensely popular in the online community. Jack Daly’s striking photographic work focuses heavily on a tongue-in-cheek style, where characters lead the narrative and meaning behind each image, with objects and recognizable pop-culture imagery helping to communicate ideas.

A mixture of carefully thought out concepts and spontaneous situations, his work has two key styles. Most of his images are ironic and emulate a lot of his life and real situations/experiences. Many pieces focus on the play of words and he often starts with titles that he find humorous, which evolve into an image that he personally finds equally humorous. Jack Daly makes art for himself, because he can’t bear not to spend his life creating seemingly silly images based around a pun that tickles him. His latest collection “Make America Love Again,” is an insight into the mysterious truths sweeping the USA. Shot in and around Los Angeles, the series explores old Hollywood, captures spontaneous youth culture and sheds some personal vision on Donald Trump’s controversial 2016 presidential campaign.

“I try to keep things humorous and positive. I don’t really have strong opinions or a personal point of view I’m trying to get across, but more things that make me laugh with what’s going on in the world. I’m fascinated by characters rather than real life so I try to tell stories that I find interesting, using themes and props that make things feel more like fiction than reality.” – Jack Daly
