Jake Nemirovsky is an artist based in Narrm/Melbourne, Australia. In 2019 he completed a Bachelor of Arts (Photography) at RMIT University, focusing on how his hybridised identity as a first generation Australian-Russian-Jew fits within an Australian landscape. In 2020 Jake completed his Bachelor of Arts (Photography) (Honours) at RMIT University, investigating how the documentary genre can visualise precarity in the contemporary world. He is currently continuing his research into precarity. Jake’s photographic practice blurs the distinction between the real and the fictional, reassessing documentary image-making conventions in light of an unfolding post-truth world. Jake’s work is heavily influenced by the photobook form and collaboration.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
