James Dodd is a documentary photographer from Sheffield, UK. His work concentrates on social documentary, in recognition of which he has been featured as a finalist for Magnum/Burn Magazine’s Emerging Photographer Fund (2010) and received an honourable mention in Magenta Foundations Forward – Emerging Photographers list (2011). His work has been published and exhibited internationally, with recent shows in Tokyo, Arlés, London and Sheffield and features in the British Journal of Photography, The Observer and Newsweek Japan. He is a founder member of Statement Images, a UK based photography collective, and co-editor of Street Reverb Magazine, an international magazine dedicated to the promotion of street photography.

Of this work, Olympic Dreams, he writes, ‘Sport funding in the UK increased dramatically as a result of winning the 2012 Olympic bid. With the London Olympics looming and knowing the eyes of the world will soon be upon the nation, much of this funding has been used to identify exceptional youth talent and train them intensively into an army of potential Olympians. ‘Olympic Dreams’ explores the physical and mental expectations placed on these young shoulders, whilst questioning the role of children in such high-pressured roles in our society’.
