Jarrod Oram (b. 1974) is a Texas-based visual storyteller with a fully lived life of experience, perspective, gratitude, and dipshittery. It all allows him to create cool ass breathtaking memorial images. His photographs are a reflection of how he views the world through unmasked technicolor glasses. He searches for the beauty in the forgotten and abandoned, capturing the grace in flaws and cracks, allowing the breadth of the world to shine through.
His work is based on the journey and not the destination. Whether that means waiting hours for a car to move out of the frame, for the sun to hit in THE perfect spot, or for the shadow to crawl to its optimal position. It’s all about giving the subject the time, space and beauty it so rightly deserves. Music drives the energy of his heartbeat. With his Leica riding shotgun, songs from Radiohead to Miles Davis to Townes Van Zandt to Kendrick Lamar, fuel the soundtrack of traveling thousands of miles of back roads, desolate places, small towns, and pulsating metropolises.
Oram captures the expanse, quirkiness, stillness, oddities and beauty of everywhere from the Mojave Desert to Paris. Today there is an ever-growing, deeper understanding and connectivity to what he feels, why he feels, and how he views that through the lens, and what the final story reveals. You can find Jarrod’s work in restaurant groups and design firms throughout the Southwest, along with several private collections.
