Gina Glover is a photographic artist and co-founded London’s Photofusion Photography Centre in the 1980s, where she is a director. She is a recipient of the Royal Photographic Society’s Hood Medal, and twice winner of the Medical Research Council’s Visions of Science Award. Her work ranges from playful explorations of the biomedical sciences, long term studies of way in which the landscape has been altered by human conflict, to social-psychological explorations of the landscape.
Glover’s biomedical studies are exhibited in around 20 hospitals, clinics and private collections in Britain and worldwide, including the Gregor Mendel Institute Austria. Work drawn from her 20-year Playgrounds of War project was exhibited at the 2009 Photo Biennale at the Guangdong Museum of Art, Guangzhou, China and at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels in 2012 as well as galleries around the UK. Her recent lensless landscape project, Liminal World, was exhibited at Hooper’s Gallery, London in 2010 and Le Cinq Gallery in Rabastens, France, in 2013.
Glover’s book, Objects of Colour: Baltic Coast, and Playgrounds of War are published by Foxhall Publishing Ltd. Her new book The Metabolic Landscape co authored with Geof Rayner and Jessica Rayner, published by Black Dog Publishing is due to be released in June 2014.
