Like her images set in interior locations, such as dining rooms and sitting rooms, Jones's series of garden photographs highlights the artificial nature of much of the English domestic environment. Using evocative lighting and poses which suggest tension and ambivalence, Jones explores the nature of adolescence and of teenage repression, within the context of suburban living. Much of her work explores the notion of the uncanny in the everyday, or the way in which the familiar can become charged with unfamiliarity.
