Overview
Jason Oddy is an artist and writer focused on the politics of place. Nieyemer in Algeria, Guantanamo Bay, the Pentagon, ex-Soviet sanatoria, cryonics facilities, NATO listening stations, the United Nations headquarters and homes of the recently deceased are just some of the sites which he has made work about.
 
With their stripped down aesthetic and emphasis on geometric rhythms, his meditative large format photographs stand as a timely enquiry into the underlying forces that lie at the heart of such centres of power and strangeness. 

His work has been exhibited internationally including at The Photographers’ Gallery (London), Yossi Milo Gallery (New York), the Milan Triennale, Paris Photo, Casa Niemeyer (Brasilia) and the French Communist Party Headquarters (Paris).

It has been featured in numerous publications including Modern Painters, Aperture, Art Review, the AA Files, Art on Paper and the New York Times Magazine.
