Melissa Jordan (b.1984, Cambridge, UK) is an artist living and working in London. Her work explores the physicality of photographs through their transformation into sculptures and layered photographs. These works, with their added plasticity, question the flatness of images and the way we experience them in our digitally driven lives.
