Bio

Kenneth Jackson's quiet and poetic photographs vary in subject matter and include natural and human environments, still life, portraits, and the nude. He often uses alternative photographic processes to create work in unique handmade prints and small-editions, as well as open-edition archival prints. His work has been shown in solo and group exhibits, published in prestigious journals, and is held in private collections.
