The British Journal of Photography


"The Photograph as Contemporary Art" series is now published in the new October issue of the BJP in the portfolio section. The publication is ten full colour pages and the opening text is by Simon Bainbridge. The above pictures are a few of the pages in the article.

Simon Bainbridge writes, "If Melinda Gibson’s photomontages look familiar, don’t be surprised. A flash of Ed Burtynsky here, a slice of Juergen Teller there, they are all made up of elements of some of the major works of the 1990s and 2000s, culled from the pages of The Photograph As Contemporary Art. Written and edited by Charlotte Cotton (former curator at the V&A and LACMA, and now creative director of the UK’s National Media Museum), it is one of the key texts for students starting out in photographic education. Which is precisely why the 26-year-old, who graduated from London College of Communication in 2006 and is now a visiting lecturer herself, chose to use it."

Harpers Bazaar

Very nice article in Australian Harpers Bazaar about my inspiration for HUGO by Hugo Boss's SS12 collection "Poetic Tailoring" in the October issue 2011 - 3 Artistic Licence. They talk about Eyan Allen's thoughts after the show quoting him,

"It's definitely a very artistic-inspired collection....There's such a strong link between art and fashion and when you fuse them together you end up with something quite interesting,' explains Allen who drew his inspiration from British artist and photographer Melinda Gibson. She does beautiful abstract collages and when I saw her exhibition, I was very excited by it and a lot of the prints on the womenswear are inspired by her own collection."
