Jobson uses photography and video in her practice exploring the edges between landscape and our own memories. Sharing universal perspectives, themes, research, notetaking, walking journeys in nature. Her ongoing practice usually begins with the focus of place, the habitat of people through the investigative nature of landscape. Our own journeys are interconnected to our sense of place they make us who we are. Our true selves are being challenged with the ongoing social, economic and environmental changes in front of us.
