About the Artist

Tomiko Jones (Seattle) received a 2005 GAP to purchase materials, defray darkroom rental costs and promotional materials for her series of self-portrait photography, Landscapes. The series was photographed spontaneously in remote and solitary locations, including the natural landscapes of Mexico, Morocco, Egypt and the United States. For presentation, the work will be traditionally printed as 20"x24” toned gelatin silver prints and exhibited in a classical matte frame style. Jones currently has a show scheduled at the Upfeld Gallery in Tokyo. These works aim to “examine images that might be seen as especially inappropriate for a woman, their integration into landscapes rendering them beautiful rather than offensive,” offers Jones.
