Ian Jacko Jackson
Born in Hull, England, in 1966, Ian J Jackson’s fascination with photography began when he picked up his first camera at the age of 12. Captivated as much by the ‘process’ of developing photographs, as taking pictures, his love of the dark room’ inspired him to pursue his passion for photography, first at the London College of Printing, then at St Martins School of Art.
In 1992, he set up his own ‘Cibachrome’ dark room in a studio in Shoreditch. Here he began to develop a unique extraverted photographic style – underpinned by his exceptional talent for transforming the everyday mundane into the unique combined with a skill for innovative image manipulation.
