Jacqueline Butler is an artist living and working in Manchester, England and Glasgow, Scotland. She works with photography, digital video, the artist book, and writing. Her current research considers what constitutes photography in the 21st Century, combining pre-photography principles with traditional and new print technologies. Jacqueline’s arts practice evaluates the tangibility of the contemporary photograph and explores themes associated with analogue photography, of loss and melancholia. Much of her practice involves working archives and collections (both public and private). She exhibits her work internationally and regularly presents arts performances at international conferences and arts events.
Jacqueline is a joint-coordinator of a national artists group FTN (Family Ties Network), and is a Principal Lecturer in Photography at Manchester School of Art, MMU. She is an Executive Board Member of Open Eye Gallery, a contemporary photography Gallery based in NW England.
