James Sparshatt est un artiste photographe britannique. Il a été le lauréat de l'Exposition Internationale du Center for Fine Art Photography du Colorado, USA en 2008, a été présélectionné pour les Sony World Photographic Awards 2009 et a été finaliste du World Photography Gala Awards en 2010. Son oeuvre "Soweto Strings" a été vendue aux enchères à Sotheby's New York en novembre 2011.

Ses travaux capturent de façon spectaculaire le dynamisme et l'intensité émotionnelle de la vie. Ses images de la musique et la danse latino, du flamenco en Espagne, du tango en Argentine, de la salsa dans les rues de La Havane, sont pleines de mouvement et d'émotion. Ses travaux ont été exposés à New York, au Texas, à Londres, en Espagne, à Cuba et au Royaume-Uni. Son exposition de 2006 au Royal National Theatre a été décrite dans le "Sunday Telegraph" comme "une collection éblouissante d'images en noir et blanc."

Une sélection de ses images sont des tirages platine-palladium réalisés parles imprimeurs Paul et Max Caffell du 31 Studio. 31 Studio travaille aussi avec David Bailey, Henri Lartigue et Sebastiano Salgado parmi de nombreux autres photographes célèbres.
