Jessica Neary BA (Hons) Photography
Derived from a need to form attachments to place as a means to navigate and further understand her surroundings, Jess Neary’s work, ‘Navigating the Unfamiliar’, alludes to the matter of memory and identity. She is interested in our occupation of spaces and the means by which we convey our sense of self through them, creating places that we can navigate and form attachments to. Her work reflects her own conceptual relationship with place and associated memories found therein. She also has an interest in the photographing of unnoticed aesthetics and brief happenings. The resulting ambiguity that accompanies her imagery invites the viewer to reflect and draw their own narratives and meaning from it.
