Jessica Chaundy is an Oxford/Brighton based photographer currently studying BA (Hons) Photography at the University of Brighton.
Chaundy’s practice investigates the extent to which abstract mental phenomena of the psyche can be captured visually. Having an adoration for analogue photography as well as an appreciation for the digital world, she works at the place where the imagination and the factual meet. Using both props and digital manipulation, the viewer is encouraged to form their own interpretation of images, and question what we consider reality.
Growing up near the countryside, Chaundy addresses these topics using the landscape as a deliberate setting: “a place that is both free and controlled, timeless and time-bound; landscape photographs contain their own paradoxes that I symbolically embrace in my work”.
Chaundy is currently developing experience in the photographic industry through curating university exhibitions, and additionally creates documentary work for events. Her most recent exhibition, OXY, took place at the University of Brighton last spring.
