Tomiko Jones was born in Los Angeles, California. She lives and works in Denver, Colorado. Her loose narratives unfold in sculptural video installations and questionably fictional photographs. Linked to the identity of place in social, cultural and geographical terms, her work explores transitions in the landscape with particular attention to public lands. Jones received her Master of Fine Arts in Photography with a Certificate in Museum Studies from the University of Arizona in Tucson in 2008.  She is the recipient of awards including the 2013 En Foco New Works Fellowship, the National Society for Photographic Education Freestyle Crystal Apple Award for Outstanding Achievement, 4Culture and CityArtists.  Most recent projects include Canal, a site-responsive three-channel environment for Scottsdale Public Art, You Get What You Pay For a multimedia collaboration with Chris Dacre, and the interdisciplinary four-person collaborative The Gretel Project, that debuted at Babka Blackbox Theatre in March 2015. Jones exhibits regularly in the United States and has had solo exhibitions in Tokyo and México City. She spent three months in residence at Museé Niépce in Chalon-Sur-Saône, France, one of the birthplaces of photography, and returned to southern France for a project-specific Fellowship at The Camargo Foundation in Cassis. She taught photography at New Mexico State University and 3D Concepts in Drury University's Graduate Program. She is an Assistant Professor of Art and Coordinator of the Photography Program at Metropolitan State University of Denver, Colorado.  In 2015-16 year, Jones will be a Visiting Artist and Curator-in-Residence at California Institute of Integral Studies, San Francisco.
