New Book: Work Notes by Michael G Jackson, 2022
Format: A5 / 21 x 14.7 cm
The book contains 107 pages including 50 images accompanied by Michael's 'work notes' that reveal his thought processes and ideas as well as his philosophical approach to art and creating his unique Luminogram prints.
"Each decision affects next decision. An abstract image is built up - it is constructed."
"The Luminogram itself is more like a sculpture than a painting. The light changes the very structure of the paper - transforming it, rather than adding to it."
"The images are based upon pre-thought and then impulses guided by that thought. (…)"
"Making honest work is the only way to show the mirror of you."
Michael G Jackson (b.1966) is an experimental photographer based in North Dorset, England. He studied art at West Dean College in Sussex, then apprenticed under landscape painter Christopher W Baker and later discovered his passion for photography. He moved away from working with traditional camera techniques in 2015 and is currently progressing the Luminogram process into new directions in which he has become regarded as a leading practitioner.
His work has been exhibited internationally and is part of various private and museum collections including The National Art Gallery in Washington, USA.
