Gina trained in Fine Art at Chelsea School of Art and in Photography at the University of Westminster. She co-founded Photo Co-Op in 1979 in Wandsworth, which in 1991 became Photofusion Photography Centre, based in Brixton.
Gina is recipient of the Royal Photographic Society’s Hood Medal, the Medical Research Council’s Visions of Science Award (twice) and funding from Arts Council England (on three occasions.) She has been interviewed for the British Library SOUNDS archive and in 2016 received Wellcome Foundation funding for her project Life In Glass, using the scientific IVF photography of the Nobel Prize winning biologist Sir Robert Edwards.
Glover’s work ranges from playful explorations of the biomedical sciences, usually as an artist-in-residence, psychological studies of human perception, and long-term studies of environments altered by human conflict and economic development. She employs varied photographic techniques from lensless photography, to conventional and alternative processing, through to photography incorporating digital design.
In 2017 Glover is working on two projects. The first tackles the theme of anthropogenic changes in the landscape linked to climate change, addressing desertification and flux and flow. The second project is the continuation of her Life In Glass project, in collaboration with Prof. Sarah Franklin of Cambridge University.
Glover’s 20-year project, Playgrounds of War was exhibited at the 2009 Photo Biennale at the Guangdong Museum of Art, China, the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels in 2012, as well as galleries around the UK. Her lensless landscape project, Liminal World was exhibited at Hooper’s Gallery, London, in 2010, and Le Cinq Gallery in Rabastens, France, in 2013. Her 2016 series The Metabolic Landscape was shown as part of the Fototfest Biennial Changing Circumstances in Houston, USA. Glover’s biomedically-based work is currently on show in more than 20 hospitals, clinics and private collections across the world, including the Gregor Mendel Institute, Austria.
Her 2014 book The Metabolic Landscape: Perception, Practice and the Energy Transition - co-authored with Geof Rayner and Jessica Rayner - was published by Black Dog Publishing. Her other books include Objects of Colour: Baltic Coast and Playgrounds of War were published by Foxhall Publishing Ltd.
