Helen Jones holds a BFA in Photography from the Massachusetts College of Art. Raised a Vermonter, she now resides in Portland, Oregon where she runs Pine Island Press, an extra small press specializing in image based publications. Incandescent, a biannual zine showcasing color film photography has, over the last eight years, featured more than three hundred emerging artists. Helen also shoots film; her office is filled with photobooks, old large format cameras, and an excess of vintage ephemera; she never misses a chance for a road trip. She is drawn to small mysteries and this is often evident in her work, which explores interactions between people, places and landscapes. Her aesthetic is one of things built up unintentionally and of imprints left behind — she loves the word “palimpsest”.
Recently she has been shooting black and white photos close to home in Oregon and Washington. Helen’s work has been featured online on sites such asAin’t—Bad, F-stop Magazine and Float Magazine; and in print in Subjectively, Objective. More of her work can see at helenejonesphotography.com
