Jacky is a longstanding North East photographer and educator whose work is deeply embedded in the local landscape.
Mostly she has worked with large format film, often using the Gum Bichromate printing process.
Jacky won the International Print Biennale 2014 Print Awards with Gum Bichromate prints of bricks from the North East coastline.
These had been discarded into rivers, dumps or directly into the sea, many still bearing the original maker’s mark and identity. Following much of her other work these images reflected on the wider social, economic and industrial transitions that have impacted on our region.
Her best known local work is probably “Room: Photographs and Essays from the Town Moor, Newcastle Upon Tyne”, which led to a local exhibition and book (co-authored with Chris Wharton).
Subsequently the BBC commissioned Kaleel Zibe to make “The Secret Life of the Town Moor.”
She was the runner up in the New Homelands’ European Architectural Photography Prize, 2009 with images emphasising the psychological impact of local architectural forms on their users/subjects.
Her work has been exhibited locally in Newcastle and Sunderland, and internationally in Austria, Germany and Italy.
