Stories about those days.

The stories that people have about Jamie’s photos are a source of amazement.  Some are of the “that’s me and we were doing this” type of stories from Jamie’s friends. Some are the “I never met Jamie but this was taken on my birthday and it means a lot to me. And some are just stunningly moving one of a kind stories.

    I was born 22.02.1991 I find it amazing to see what someone was doing on the day I was born. I was born at 12:18am after my mother went into labour at London Charring Cross train station after seeing the Rocky Horror Show. I was born in Camden Hospital, London and apparently it snowed that day too. It’s funny to see a photograph that is so sunny and bright. I am also a photographer and art and photography Teacher in a secondary school. I love these images and will use them with my post 16 photography class.

    This is the day I was born. I was the first girl born on my dad’s side in 50 years. He had the local radio station play Today by The Smashing Pumpkins to celebrate.

    My partner and I were also born on this day. He was born in Portugal and I was born in England. It’s wonderful to see something historic but so ordinary about the day we were born. Thank you Jamie xoxo

    This is my birthday as well. My siblings didn’t know my name yet so they made a banner that said “Welcome Home Baby!” I love that this photo is a homecoming for another person. This is a beautiful project!

    As he gazes through The window, miles away a baby girl was born 2:03 PM, 6 lbs 14 oz, 19 inches long. The Mothers heart stops, the grandmother holds the baby tight as doctors surround her daughter. The one silent monitor lights back up. A sigh of relief.

    That baby was me.

    I believe true art is when you deeply feel for this person even having never met him/her. This truly is art is every sense of the word.

    The day I was born. The world would never be the same again and that little baby had no idea she would be in for quite a ride. I don’t really have baby pictures. I’m obviously not in this one, but its so beautiful to know that somehow, that day was captured forever. Thank you.
