Interview

An interview with Jenni Mitchell 2010

FROM THE EDGE: IMAGES FROM WILD PLACES

An exhibition at Montsalvat.

 

This interview was given in 2010 in preparation for my Montsalvat Exhibition ‘From the Edge: Images from Wild Places’.

In the interview I am speaking about the artist and the camera and the attitudes around me when I produced a camera. I was given my first SLR camera (Pentax) at the age of 18.

The camera is as important a medium for capturing the world that inspires me as is my paint brush. At times the brush is the most relevant tool while other subjects are best captured by the camera to portray the image I have in mind.
