I wrote a short piece on Jackie Nickerson for ArtKrush this week. Don’t miss her work at Jack Shainman Gallery.

In the tradition of crossover photographers such as Richard Avedon, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, and Steven Meisel, Jackie Nickerson switched from snapping fashion spreads to staging inventive portraits. After establishing a commercial and editorial career, which included shooting for Vogue, Elle, and Marie Claire, Nickerson decided to pursue her own projects and has since traveled the world in search of new subjects. In the last ten years, she has lived in South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Ireland, and Spain, with each place facilitating her investigations of different cultural and religious practices.
