This photographic work documents the dynamics of the humble spent breath and is one in a series of colour photographs that were first created between 2012 and 2014, each recording the out breath of one of Jayne’s close circle of friends and family. This work is printed to order and supplied unframed, but we can also arrange for it to be mounted on aluminium, at an additional cost.

Jayne Wilton has spent her career as an artist investigating the human breath in a visual format, very often exploring the subject alongside scientists, musicians and poets. Jayne has an MA (Fine Art) from the Slade School of Fine Art, 2010, and has since completed a Leverhulme funded residency at Brunel University where she worked in collaboration with particle physicists Professor Peter Hobson and Professor Akram Kahn. In 2014 she received ACE funding for a collaborative project with the Royal Brompton Hospital and Harefield Hospitals to record the breath and song of patients with respiratory impairment. Jayne is currently working with the Wellcome Foundation funded Life of Breath Project.
