Description

After a career as a successful magazine photographer with a great eye for fashion, style and detail, Jackie Nickerson quit the commercial world, bought a truck and spent two and a half years travelling through Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe. She photographed in the small towns and on the corporate plantations making astonishing portraits of workers in their workplace. The result is the forging of a new visual language that creates a great sense of elegance, dignity and compassion in the face of daily toil. Farm has become a document for an agrarian culture in tatters and, in some places, on the brink of collapse. It is a view of Africa outside the language of photojournalism and the previous depictions of the glories of tribal culture. Nickerson is a new, compelling and original photographer.
