“No-one on that ship thought we’d be leaving home forever, but when my father hugged me on the dockside, for some reason, I knew I’d never see him again. I still see my father; you know, in my mind at least, after all these years. But I can’t see his face. No matter how hard I try.” – Amy Jackson

Andrew Jackson is an artist who engages with the challenges of representation and storytelling through the medium of photography. His work deals with migration and memory, speaking to the ways in which experience shapes systems of belief, notions of self, and our connection to the physical spaces around us–and those who inhabit them.
Jackson was selected for the Autograph ABP 2018 Light Work Artist-in-Residence program in Syracuse, NY, enabling him to produce the works on show in From Small Island at MAC, as well as Arts Council England's Artist International Development fund.Read More
