about






British b.1966, in Wokingham, Berkshire

Jackson trained as a painter at West Dean College, England.

After completing an extensive eight year photographic study of a single beach in Wales, he turned from camera based photography to exploring the avant-garde techniques of the luminogram in the darkroom using controlled light sources and a uniquely developed process.

Jackson won the Chris Beetles Award in 2013 and became a Hasselblad Masters Award finalist three times in 2008, 2009 and 2012.





A book featuring his luminogram work was published in 2017 by 21st Editions - titled FLATLAND - and premiered at the Grand Palais in Paris.

His work is held at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. 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
