Jo Ganter has taken photographs for the whole of her career, often to simply record imagery that she is interested in. They reflect her love of urban spaces, grid formations and, increasingly, the more complex matrices she sees in nature.
Photographs taken from New Jersey Transit trains while the artist was commuting between New York and New Jersey. Jo Ganter's interest in grid structures and space are clear in her choice of subject matter, typical also of her interest in the edges of urban spaces.
In 2011 Ganter was asked to teach at the University of Massuchusetts in Amherst. The snow didn't allow cycling until late April. These are taken along the old Nantucket train line, now cycle trail, that runs between Amherst and Northampton.
Taken on Mull, the photographs show again the artist observing the repeat patterns, vertical lines and horizontal stretches of space in the environment.
