British b.1966, in Wokingham, Berkshire
Jackson trained as a painter at West Dean College, England.
After moving to Wales In 2007 he started work on an intensive study of a single remote beach, Poppit Sands, which lasted for eight years until 2015.
Jackson won the Chris Beetles Award in 2013 and became a Hasselblad Masters Award finalist three times in 2008, 2009 and 2012.
Now regarded as a leading exponent of the luminogram process, he works with uniquely developed techniques and response mirroring using silver gelatin paper in the darkroom.
In 2017 his luminogram work was paired with theologian Edwin A.Abbott in a book published by 21st Editions, titled after the author's famous work 'FLATLAND' and premiered at the Grand Palais in Paris.
His work is held at the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the collection of the University of Minnesota.
"A true avant-garde of photography, he is on his way to becoming one of the most renowned contemporary fine art photographers." - Lomography Magazine
"Mike Jackson’s stunning luminograms extend toward perfection what many photographers in the early twentieth century began" - The Od Review
"Far from being an exercise in nostalgia, this analogue technique offers Jackson, as it does other artists at the cutting edge of this art movement, a path to the future." - The Financial Times
