Lisbon, Portugal, 1994
About the Artist

Jaime Welsh’s highly-constructed photographs – often of clinical, official interiors – depict figures in architectural space as allegories for anxious or tense psychological ones. His research focuses on the formal relationship between humans and architectural space and the evocation of psychological interiority through photography.
