JAI ODELL    

Born and raised on the Australian coast, Jai grew up on the beach longing for the big city.
At an early stage in his life he developed an intense visual universe, experimenting with painting, filmmaking and photography.

After his graduation, he began working in the film industry while studying at the Sydney’s Award school to become an art director.
It was as he secured his first position as an art director for a Sydney based advertising agency that his attention shifted towards photographers working on advertising campaigns.

He began assisting the most talented fashion photographers in Sydney and soon decided to move to New York where he promptly commenced to work first with Steven Klein and then spent a year working with Steven Meisel. Subsequently Jai became David Sims’ first assistant for three years in London before feeling ready to go on his own.

Jai has developed a unique identity highlighted by a strong cinematic universe which has been enforced by his multiple visual sources and life experiences.

Jai currently lives between London and New York.
