Andrew Jackson is an artist who engages with the challenges of representation and narration through the medium of photography.
His interventions focus on migration, memory and notions of urbanism; and speak to the ways in which interpellation impacts 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.
Jackson is a recent recipient of the Light Works International Photography Residency in Syracuse, NY (2018) and Arts Council England's Artist International Development fund, which enabled him to develop a work exploring language, identity and the spaces of Montreal, and is working towards a major exhibition in Birmingham 2018 exploring the Jamaican Diaspora and the universality of migration.
He is a graduate of the MA Documentary program- with distinction - at Newport in Wales and has since undertaken both self-initiated and commissioned works in the UK and abroad.
In 2013 he co-founded and became a Co-Director of Some Cities CIC a participatory photography company.
In 2012 he was nominated for the Prix Pictet Award.
