Based in North Somerset, England. Jacob Dear is a Photographer who specialises in Documentary photography & photojournalism.
Jacob first discovered his passion for Documentary photography & photojournalism whilst studying his BA Hons at Bath Spa University, where he produced multiple bodies of work that gained county wide notoriety. one of these projects being '5Ks" which is a project that documents the changing landscape around Hinkley C & the damage that it is coursing to people who live the nuclear power plant. This body of work, once completed, was published in two newspapers (Burnham-on-sea.com & Bridgwater mercury) & also exhibited in two separate galleries in Somerset.
