roOm Jason Courtis


roOm, is the artist name of Jason Courtis, a Christchurch-born photographer/artist, and winner of the 2017 NZ Art Show Signature Art Award.

"I was Wellington-based for 19 years, but I have now relocated to Gisborne, Turanganui-a-kiwa. I am interested in the anonymity that photography brings. When you take a photo, people focus on the image and the camera.. not the artist behind it. I like the idea of the artist being invisible and letting the camera do the work. I love the personal vision that photography brings out, my eye sees things differently to yours . I also like trying to capture solitude and isolation in my images, traveling to remote and unknown locations to photograph at dusk, dark or low-light."
