Gillian Jones is a Brisbane based documentarian with a Bachelor of Photography, majoring in Photojournalism with specialisations in Editorship, Publication and Documentary Practice from the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University.
With a methodology that explores both documentary and fine art photography, Jones creates illustrative works that seek to capture the emotional content as much as the physical. Often combining image and text, the works are quiet collaborations between her subjects and her response to their situation and also her own.
Jones is drawn to producing gentle works that are private in their content and contemplative in their message. She delves into our social structure and values, visually investigating topics that are personal and therefore unexplored and misunderstood within the mainstream.
She asks you to look beyond what you initially see and listen beyond what you instinctively hear.
Gillian Jones’ body of work Choice, Chance or Circumstance is part of the collective exhibition IN SITU: New Photodocumentary Work
