Presentation by Mack:

"In 2011 Vanessa Winship was the recipient of the Henri Cartier Bresson Award which funds an artist to pursue a new photographic project. 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 Jacksonpresents a conversation, a lyrical and 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. 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 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."

This book is part of the Prix Henri Cartier-Bresson awarded in 2011 to Vanessa Winship that finances a new project. The artist travelled acorss the United States for over one year looking for the "American Dream" in search of the interactions between the people and their territiories.

We knew Vanessa Winship was a great portraitist, she reveals with She Dances on Jackson a great sensitivity and mastership in the choice and in the making of her landscape photographs.
