Gin Rimmington Jones is a photographic artist based in Brighton, UK. Her work explores ideas of perception and coexistence between the human and the natural worlds. A lens-based artist, she interrogates the space between landscape, representation and the image to embody the complexity of spatial relations that make up a landscape.

“I can look at the world in a state of ‘not knowing’ and connect with something inner, something primal… that is what I am drawn to. Viewers have commented that my work is both conceptual and makes you feel something, and I take that as the highest of compliments. Growing up on a farm has given me a deep-rooted connection to the land and how we relate to it, to questions of dwelling and coexistence. I hope that viewers will be stirred to slow down and have a rethink of what surrounds them, what they are a part of … I am encouraging a deeper connection that goes beyond words. The gap between knowing and naming is where the magic of the experience of a landscape resides. An image can be an effective vessel for the things that cannot be said… I am saying the unsayable.”
