About

Jason SG White is a freelance photographer and digital artist based in Sydney Australia. Born in 1975, the son of Ukrainian refugees that came to Australia from Germany at the end of World War II.

His artistic expression is influenced by the need to understand transgenerational trauma. Trauma that is transferred from the first generation of trauma survivors to the second and further generations of offspring of the survivors via complex post-traumatic stress disorder mechanisms.

Jason’s professional photography career began after he was given the opportunity to photograph a group of talented emerging Western Sydney performance artists and was also introduced to Sydney’s contemporary art scene over a number of years.

He first graduated from Western Sydney University where he studied a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Computing and Information Systems, and then from the Australian Centre for Photography where he studied Camera Craft and Lighting. His photography has been exhibited in art galleries around Sydney and he was a finalist with a self-portrait in the Marrickville Contemporary Art Prize in 2008.

Jason does photography not because he has to, but because he loves photography.
