James Robert Fuller is a British photographer based in Brooklyn, New York.
Before his move to New York, James lived in Southeast Asia where his documentary work on the consequences of conflict and disaster often examined themes of home and dislocation. His long-term projects document the resettlement of refugees from Burma to the United States, armed opposition by ethnic groups to Burma’s military regime, and the lives of Acehnese survivors of the 2004 tsunami.
James’ work for international news media began in the wake of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. On assignment to Indonesia for Paris Match magazine, James documented the destruction at Meulaboh, the closest town to the source of the tsunami. His images of the aftermath feature in Things As They Are: Photojournalism in Context Since 1955 published by World Press Photo and have been projected at the Visa Pour L’Image photojournalism festival.
James has worked for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Paris Match, Sydney Morning Herald and Marie Claire, to name a few.
