Gin Rimmington Jones is a photographic artist exploring the nested relationship between humans and the natural world. Her philosophical preoccupations around time, space and co-existence draw her to subjects that touch on the trace of human interventions in the landscape. Endlessly fascinated by the nexus of image, culture and nature, her work questions the primacy of Western anthropocentrism in relation to how we see and experience landscape.

"My work is an ongoing celebration of the endless potential of the photographic to communicate visually; its suggested connection to the real has always fascinated me. Growing up on a farm has given me a deep-rooted relationship to nature, and to fundamental questions around dwelling and co-existence. It is the juxtaposition of the trace of our presence in dialogue with primal spaces that fascinates me. In my work I explore the ways in which we might experience landscape as a space for sensuous encountering from within, opening up a wider conversation around the interconnectedness of humankind and the earth."
