Originally trained as a civil engineer, Shinkle went on to study photography, art history, and critical theory, obtaining her doctorate from the Slade School of Fine Art in 2003. Her practice includes both visual and written work, and reflects interests which have developed over a 20-year period, incorporating a number of different fields bound together by a common theoretical and methodological focus on the haptic and embodied dimensions of our relations with images and image-making technologies. Recent projects have included areas such as landscape, architecture and fashion photography. She writes widely for publications including Foam, Aperture, The Journal of Architecture, Art Journal, and 1000Words. [www.eugenieshinkle.com]
