Gregory Eddi Jones (b. 1986, Syracuse, NY) 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).
His photographic work interrogates politics of common cultural images, and much of his practice is defined by appropriation and re-authorship as a vehicle for visual criticism. He has exhibited work in London, New York, Amsterdam, Paris, Beijing, Melbourne, Beverly Hills, Philadelphia, Santa Fe, Denver, and Rochester, NY.
Jones' 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,
Most recently, Jones was named a 2018/19 FOAM Talent for his series Flowers for donald. The accompanying exhibition was shown in Amsterdam, New York, London, and Frankfurt in 2019. The series was self-published as a limited edition artists' book, Flowers for donald and Countries Glorious, in Decemeber, 2018.
Jones is also the Founding Editor and Publisher of In the In-Between: Journal of New and New Media Photography, an independent platform for noteworthy 21st-century photographic authorship.
