2. Jamie Campbell
Jamie Campbell makes jokes only he finds funny, but he convinces you to laugh all the same.
Jamie Campbell was born in the shadow of Niagara Falls, then he grew up and wiped the mist off his face and crossed the bulge of Lake Ontario to Toronto and Ryerson University and a BFA in Photography.
Jamie Campbell recently completed his MFA in Fine Arts - Photography, at Concordia University in Montreal. He once again resideds in Toronto, Canada.
Jamie Campbell works with the themes of insecurity, burden, vulnerability and desperation, but does it with self-deprecation and humour and profound honesty, leaving you unsure of whether you want to hit him or hug him.
Jamie Campbell is charming and disarming and surprising and warm, and would probably give you the shirt off his back because he is a nice guy and also because he is always wearing three or four.
Jamie Campbell rides an old brown bike everywhere he goes and has interesting facial hair and makes mild jokes at everyone's expense, even his own, and he is an old-fashioned romantic and he is about as close to a fictional character as a real person can get.
