Andrew Jackson is an artist who uses photography to explore the challenges of selfhood, representation and narration. His works focus on transnational migration, belonging, displacement, and memory.
Jackson's images demonstrate how photography can challenge, reshape, revise and disseminate history, as well as disrupt assumptions in discreet, intimate and personal ways.
In 2018 he was shortlisted for the Elliott Erwitt Fellowship and the Magnum Foundation Social Justice fellowship.
He is an award-winning recipient of the Autograph ABP /Light Work (AIR) International Photography Residency in Syracuse, New York and a graduate of the MA Documentary photography program at Newport in Wales.
His work is held in both International and National collections of photography such as the United Kingdom Government Art Collection, the Garman Ryan Collection, Light Work Collection at Syracuse University, Rugby Museum & Art Gallery and a range of private collections.
He co-founded and was co-director of Some Cities CIC, a community-oriented participatory photography company in the UK, between 2013 and 2018.
He currently lives and works between the UK and Canada.
