Michael Jackson (b.1966) is an experimental photographer based in North Dorset, England. He is generally regarded as a leading exponent of the luminogram process.

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

He works with controlled directed light on silver gelatin paper in the darkroom, basing his process on variations of the luminogram process. He has written numerous articles and studies on the subject and has exhibited his work internationally.

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.

"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
