After early training at the Chelsea School of Art, subsequently in photography at University of Westminster, Glover co‐founded London’s Photofusion Photography Centre in the 1980s. She is recipient of the Royal Photographic Society’s Hood Medal, the Medical Research Council’s Visions of Science Award (twice) and 3 awards from Arts Council England. In 2016 she received a Wellcome Foundation Award, for Life In Glass, linked to Cambridge University and Bourn Hall. She has also been interviewed for the British Library SOUNDS archive: sounds.bl.uk
Glover’s work ranges from playful explorations of the biomedical sciences to long‐term studies of how the environment has been altered by human conflict and economic development , through to psychological studies of human perception. She employs varied photographic techniques, from lensless photography to conventional and alternative processing, to digital design.
In 2016 Glover is working on two projects. The first tackles the theme of anthropogenic alterations of the landscape linked to climate change, addressing deserts and water, flux and flow. Her second examines genetics and in vitro fertilisation, in association with the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience, Cambridge University and Bourn Hall.
Glover’s previous projects include her 20‐year of war project associated sites and locations (Playgrounds of War), exhibited at the 2009 Photo Biennale at the Guangdong Museum of Art, China, and the Palais des Beaux‐Arts in Brussels, in 2012, as well as galleries around the UK, and her lensless landscape project, Liminal World, exhibited at Hooper’s Gallery, London, in 2010, and Le Cinq Gallery in Rabastens, France, in 2013.
In 2016 her Metabolic Landscape series was shown as part of Changing Circumstances at the Fotofest Biennial, Houston, USA.
Glover’s biomedically‐based photographic art is shown in more than 20 hospitals, clinics and private collections across the world, including the Gregor Mendel Institute, Austria. Her 2014 book The Metabolic Landscape: Perception, Practice and the Energy Transition (London: Black Dog Publishing) is co‐authored with Geof Rayner and Jessica Rayner.
Other books include Objects of Colour: Baltic Coast, and Playgrounds of War, both published by Foxhall Publishing Ltd.
