Jenny Tipton's work examines photographic existences. She is interested in the varied ways in which still and moving images come into being and the life that these images have: the photographic history of a place; the chance capturing of a fleeting moment; images that over time become the visual definition for our understanding of a specific form; photos of landmarks which, like photographic tourists, we come to know from a two dimensional image without ever having seen the landmark ourselves.
These digital and analogue recordings are more prevalent now than in the past, with affordable cameras and a plethora of digital imagery to pour through on the internet available to everyone, we are creating a never ending time line of aesthetic moments. Images are a visual currency, we seek them out and in turn they mould and change how we perceive things. We are image consumers. Like the chest of treasured postcards in Luc Godard's film Les Carabineers, an image's worth is not just its aesthetic, but the emotional and cerebral potential that it contains.
