Andrew Jackson is a contemporary British artist who engages with the challenges of representation and narration through the medium of photography.
He is an award-winning recipient of the Autograph ABP 2018/Lightwork International Photography Residency in Syracuse, New York.
His interventions focus on the African Diaspora, memory, family, storytelling and urbanism. They speak to how the experiences of others impact both upon our systems of belief and our notions of self, but also to our connection to the physical spaces around us - and those who inhabit them. Increasingly he seeks to explore notions of belonging and home specifically in works such as From a Small Island.
A graduate of the MA Documentary program with distinction at Newport in Wales, he has since undertaken both self-initiated and commissioned works in the UK and abroad.
He co-founded and was co-director of Some Cities CIC, a community-oriented participatory photography company, between 2013 and 2018.
In 2018 he was nominated for the Elliott Erwitt Fellowship.
