Trans Siberian | Jake TerreyShare This
On the 10th December 2017, armed only with a black and white camera and not a great deal else, fashion photographer Jake Terrey caught the train out of Beijing station, headed for Moscow by the end of the month.
This was the beginning of an almost 8000km train journey across the Mongolian plains and snow-clad tundras of Siberia that took him through 2 continents, 7 times zones and across 20% of the circumference of the globe - finally ending up in Moscow on Christmas Day.
The journey afforded him an authentic view of a commute across one of the most sociologically disconnected and geographically remote parts of the world – he photographed people in the world’s most polluted city, rode horses with nomadic families, dog sledded with Russian champions and endured the freeze of -40 to shoot this unique part of the world.
The experiences he captured are now being featured in an exclusive 30-image selling exhibition at SUNSTUDIOS, from 13th April to 8th May 2018.
Prints will be on sale from $350 first edition to $100 for second and third edition prints.
SUNSTUDIOS Sydney Gallery Opening Hours:
Monday to Friday 8am - 6pm
Saturday & Sunday 8am - 4pm
ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Self-trained, photographer Jake Terrey grew up on a small island on Sydney’s northern beaches, and cut his teeth photographing the weekly wooden yacht races that his father took part in. He was soon initiated in the fashion industry, where he has since become a key player in a generation forging new terrain. With a considered and contemplative style, Jake’s fashion work features artful composition and dynamic movement, but also a strong sense of intimacy.
Jake captures humanity in every shot – his fascination with catching that moment of oblivion and abandon as the shutter releases, means that his work can as easily be described as portraiture as fashion. He showcases both the fantasy of an outfit as well as a truth in the wearer. His unique style and easy professionalism have garnered him a lengthy client list given his relative youth: including Ellery, Viktoria & Woods, Westfield, David Jones, Witchery, Country Road, Sportscraft, Ksubi, MJ Bale and others.
His editorial outlets have included GQ, Elle, Harpers Bazaar – and he currently has a regular contributing relationship with Australian Vogue. Jake’s love for travel is exhibited in his personal work, where his eye for proportion and detail is evident in his stunning monochrome imagery of landscapes, structure and texture.
