  • Jackie Nickerson’s trip to Zimbabwe in the late 1990s was planned as a short holiday and evolved into over two years traveling through Sub-Saharan Africa followed by an additional five years living on a farm in Zimbabwe. This life-changing experience fulfilled Nickerson in a way that her previous years as a fashion photographer had not - she found a new purpose for her photographic practice by exploring the relationship between humankind and the Earth. Nickerson’s portraits, as evident in this compelling image of Paul, Tea Pruner, Malawi illustrates her unique approach to documentary photography that embraces post-production as a critical tool for conveying the intensity of her subjects and their environment.
