Meet the Artist – Gina Glover

glover Treetops_a4Gina Glover was born in London, England. She trained in Fine Art at Chelsea School of Art, later obtaining a photography degree at the University of Westminster. She is a co-founder and Director of the Photofusion Photography Centre, London and a freelance photographic artist and lecturer.

Gina makes site specific artwork for hospitals and lectures on themes such as ‘Creativity, Photography and the Mind’. In 2008 Gina received the Royal Photographic Society’s Hood Medal, and she has been twice winner of the Medical Research Council/Novartis/Daily Telegraph Visions of Science Award.

Much of Gina’s work involves stories, symbols and time. She explores sensual and emotionalglover Almond_blossom_a4 responses to the world, much as one does as a child. She uses a simple pinhole camera which is little more than a box with a light-hole and through her long exposures constructs images through layering light on film, a process which seemingly slows down time and alters our perceptual balance.

Gina Glover’s book, Object of Colour: Baltic Coast, recently published by Foxhall Publishing Ltd, is a collaboration with the novelist and poet Kay Syrad, featuring Kay’s poems made in response to Gina’s photographs of Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Estonia.

Gina is pleased to be taking part in the Wandsworth open house as she will be exhibiting with her daughter Jessica Rayner. She looks forward to meeting and exchanging ideas on her work with local people. Visitors will be able to see a wide range of work both her personal pinhole photography and her artworks relating to science and art made during her art residences in hospitals.

Photofusion picture library distributes her social documentary photography, and Millennium and Corbis distribute her art photography. Her fine art prints are distributed by Keith Cavanagh, London; De Santos Gallery, Houston, USA; Wanted Paris, Paris; and Le Bleu du Ciel, Lyon, France.
