Sirius Arts Centre presents two bodies of work by award winning photographer, Jackie Nickerson. Born in Boston, after a career in the commercial photography, Jackie made a break with the fashion world and created FARM, a powerful series of portraits of farm workers in southern Africa. This series was published internationally and exhibited in several countries. Jackie followed this work with FAITH, published in 2008 by SteidlMACK, which captures religious communities in Ireland.
Jackie was awarded the AIB Art Prize in 2008, and also won the Curtin O’Donoghue prize in 2009. She has recently been short listed for the Arts Council‘s prestigious affiliation of creative artists in Ireland, Aosdána. Her latest work “10 Miles Round” was recently profiled on the RTE Television series, “The View” and exhibited in the Gallery of Photography, Dublin.
This is the first showing of Farm and Faith in the Cork region. For more information contact Sirius at: (021) 481 3790
