ABOUT

Amber Pinkerton (b.1997) is a London-based, photographic and moving image artist born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica.

 

Pinkerton’s works, which range from art to fashion photography, are inspired by Caribbean culture, social commentary and socio-political context. Her intimate and intuitive snap shots of everyday life, with a focus on Jamaica, capture the beauty and humanity of her subjects. These personal portrayals are underwritten by a powerful commitment to spotlighting themes of racial equality, the judicial system and basic human rights in her native country. “I am concerned with colorism and classism”, Pinkerton says.

 

In 2022 Pinkerton will feature in her first museum show, 'Female View: Female Fashion Photographers from Modernity to the Digital Age' at Kunsthalle St. Annen, Lübeck, Germany. Pinkerton has previously been featured in The New York Times Style Magazine's list of '15 Creative Women for Our Time' and in the 2020 British Fashion Council's New Wave: Creatives List. She was listed in the Dazed 100 rankings (2020) as well as i-D's ‘Photographers to follow in 2020’ and ‘My Year in Photos’. 

 

Pinkerton is currently engaging on various personal projects, including the documentary film OUTDEH, a collaborative project portraying the Youth of Jamaica.  She is furthering her studies in photography at University of Westminster, London (2021).  Amber Pinkerton is represented worldwide by Lalaland Artists for her commercial & editorial photographic and film projects, while Alice Black Gallery fulfils the role of gallery representative.
