about

Michael Jackson (b.1966) is an experimental photographer based in North Dorset, England.

After moving to Wales in 2007 he spent over eight years studying and photographing a single beach in Pembrokeshire which resulted in him winning the Chris Beetles Award in 2013 and being a Hasselblad Masters Award finalist three times.

In 2015 he moved away from traditional camera techniques to began working with only light and paper in the darkroom and is now generally regarded as a leading exponent of the 'luminogram' process.

His work has since been exhibited and collected internationally, most recently being featured at the PhotoLondon Fair in 2017, and he has written numerous articles on the art and thinking behind the luminogram process.


"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
