About She Dances on Jackson
In 2011 Vanessa Winship was the recipient of the Henri Cartier Bresson Award which funds an artist to pursue a new photographic project. Then, for over a year Winship travelled across the United States, from California to Virginia, New Mexico to Montana, in pursuit of the fabled ‘American dream’. She dances on Jackson presents a conversation, a lyrical and also lilting interaction between landscape and portrait exploring the vastness of the United States and attempting to understand the link between a territory and its inhabitants. So, for Winship this relationship is inextricable; places accrue particular meanings according to the people she meets, what she sees, and by what’s happening to her personally. Each human encounter, sound and smell adds extra dimensions to her work and also the resulting photographs.
She dances on Jackson marks a progression. Stylistically similar to her previous work using black and white film and a large format camera, Winship’s portraits remain arresting and unnerving but this body of work reveals her to also be a skilled landscape photographer. For Winship photography is a process of literacy, a path by which she understands life. Her intimate approach enables the reader to glimpse the world as she sees it, if only for a moment.
