Jackie Nickerson

FARM (Zimbabwe, South Africa, Mozambique, Malawi, 1998-1999)

A proud woman in a field, her hand on her hip. Chipo is a farmer from Zimbabwe, a country plagued by political disorder. But Chipo’s gaze tells a different story. The story of rural areas where people work, who feel themselves inseparably bound with the land and feel buoyed up by the com-munity of which they are a part. Jackie Nickerson's portraits combine simplicity with dignity and form a counterweight to the stereotyped picture of Africans as victims. These Africans live in des-perate circumstances , but their body language proclaims their strength, and their eyes their hope.

FAITH (Ireland, 2004-2006)

Jackie Nickerson emigrated to Ireland and there became intrigued by the devotion to spirituality. She decided to photograph spaces in the country that were used for religious purposes. She began with public places such as schools, monasteries and hospitals, later obtaining access to the spaces of communities that remain closed to others. There she encountered a hallowed atmosphere that symbolizes devotion to a spiritual life, more than merely to Christianity.
