Sid White-Jones is a photographic artist interested in memory and perception. His practice focuses on the ever-shifting contemporary classification of the photographic form and aims to challenge traditional methods of communication by presenting a more mutable style of artistic expression, one which considers what photography can or cannot exist as. White-Jones graduated with First Class Honours in BA Photography from Norwich University of the Arts and in 2018 he was awarded a place on the Visa Pour l’image Documentary Photography Programme. He is currently working as an Arts Development & Community Engagement Officer at Peterborough Museum & Art Gallery, having recently partaken in the Babylon Young Curators programme at Babylon ARTS, curating the contemporary exhibition ‘No Frost at Night’. Previously he has worked alongside the Human Interfaces Creative Lab as a Guest Editor for the lens-based magazine Uncertain States and has assisted organisations including Mina Raven, The Motion Sickness Project Space and Kettles Yard. Publications include Uncertain States Magazine, ICBQ Magazine, Bait Magazine & Folium Publishing’s, ‘The Scaffold’. His work has been exhibited at Norwich University of the Arts, The Old Truman Brewery London, St. Margaret’s House London and The Motion Sickness Project Space Cambridge. IG : @sidwhitejones

What is susceptible to some forms of symbolisation and narrativisation, and what isn’t? And what do people do wit

- BAIT Magazine - 'Online' :My project ‘Studies in Still Life and Landscape’ (2017) was recently featured within the ninth issue of BAIT Magazine. The ninth issue was first released digitally in June and made its way to print this October. This particular body of work looks at the commonalities and boundaries between the fine arts and photography, which results in a visual style that floats somewhere in-between both practices. “The Still Life and the Landscape are two of the most traditional genres practiced in classica

- YEARBOOK 2020When lockdown restrictions came into effect in the UK the team at Shutter Hub wanted to do what we could for photographers. We started by making membership bursaries available and as we went through the applications we could see that many of the applicants were from students who were due to have graduate shows, which were now cancelled indefinitely, despite all the time and money they had put into preparing for them.
