Gregory Eddi Jones (b. 1986) is an American artist, writer, and publisher who lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. He holds a BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology (2010) and an MFA from Visual Studies Workshop (2016).
Jones' practice examines and re-authors existing image products through the mechanisms of digital- and internet-based tools, and focuses concerns on analyzing the politics of photographs and other images common to the American cultural lexicon. His work has led him to explore a wide range of subject matter, including sports, news broadcasting, advertising, crime photography, history, war, surveillance, "selfies," terrorism, space, and landscape.
Jones' work has been exhibited at Site 109 in New York City, Strange Neighbour Gallery in Melbourne, Australia, Ningbo Museum of Art in Zhejiang Province, China, The Organhaus in Chongqing, China, and in various venues in Rochester, NY.
His first book, Another Twenty-Six Gas Stations, was self-published in October, 2014 and has gone on to be acquired by over two dozen institutional artists' book and photobook collections, including libraries at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, RISD, MassArt, MICA and Columbia University. The title was also included in two iterations of the exhibition Ed Ruscha: Books & Co, at Gagosian Gallery Paris and Beverly Hills, respectively,
Jones is also the founding editor of In the In-Between: Journal of Digital Imaging Artists, a web and print platform that publishes artists working at the intersections of photography and digital media. Through this platform Jones has edited and contributed to over 75 features on contemporary artists and their antecedents.
