DoBeDo contributor Jamie Hawkesworth has an upcoming exhibition, Landscape with Tree, at the Huis Marseille in Amsterdam.
Hawkesworth’s approach to photography is grounded in the subtle, elegiac and playful heritage of British documentary photography. With his works exhibited across the 14 rooms of the beautiful Huis Marseille, Hawkesworth aims to create a photographic experience in synergy with the architectural setting, and in anticipation of your engagement with the works.
In Landscape with Tree you can explore the spectrum of experiences that Hawkesworth has sought out with his camera of the past ten years, and the places this has ultimately taken him. The exhibition manifests his sustained and transitory intimacies, planned and unexpected journeys, and wonderful immersions.
DoBeDo contributor Jamie Hawkesworth is launching his first book, Preston Bus Station.
Preston Bus Station is a body of photographs produced during sustained engagement with a site of key significance in the development of Hawkesworth’s practice.
In Preston Bus Station, Hawkesworth does not concern himself directly with the political and social concerns of precast concrete. Rather, attention is given to the myriad of people that turn structure into place.
Preston Bus Station is published by Loose Joints, an artist-run publisher and design studio founded in 2015 by Sarah P-Espenon and Lewis Chaplin.
Pre-order is available here on Loose Joints.

DoBeDo contributor Jamie Hawkesworth returned to Preston for a month this year to document the final days of the iconic Preston bus station, in both photographs and moving image.
The project began over 3 years ago when Jamie first documented the people that passed through the station. Earlier this year a selection of these portraits were then enlarged and displayed inside the station and will remain until it is demolished. Jamie also produced a 10 minute film featuring the children from the ‘All Hallows High School Brass Band’, a moving tribute to mark the end of the project and the final days of the station.
DoBeDo is proud to be exclusively premiering the film, and please click here to see the images in full.
