AboutWhen asked about his obsessive pursuit of symmetry and stillness, Love may deny that he is a perfectionist, yet at first glance that is what the viewer is faced with; a utopia unsullied by human intervention: Love gives us swimming pools without the swimmers. Love provides the viewer with a re-envisioning of a familiar British leisure space, and provokes us to question notions of freedom and self-fulfillment.
Jacob Love was born in 1980, and studied at University of the West of England and Goldsmiths College, University of London, where he now lectures in photography. He has been mentored by the renowned visual artists Franko B and Wolfgang Tillmans. Love currently lives and works in London.
