Jacqueline Butler

Director of Studies, Department of Media

Vice-Chair of APHE(Association for Photography in Higher Education)
Member of Righton press research group, MMU

I work mainly in digital film, video and alternative photographic/ image making processes and artist books.
The subject of my work has consistently been the representation of the female body and domestic histories.
Recent work involves reflections on narrative structure and sequencing in relation to book publication and film. Exploring a deconstruction of conventional narrative structures and considering the effect of the ‘edit’. Concentrating on a study of the ‘edges’ of space, the separation of inside and out, private and public.
