Jackson’s most recent work in the Native American homeland focuses on his culture and the changing way of life of both urban and reservation Indians, along with the attendant socio-political issues of the “Indian Condition.” In this series Jackson uses photography as a teaching and story-telling device to de-mythologize his own history and to break down the romanticized and racially charged stereotypes of Indians perpetuated in history and the media by presenting a simple straightforward journey. In the poetic photographic style of Henri Cartier-Bresson, and like Bill Owen’s work Suburbia, Jackson documents the joys of ordinary life with humor and empathy.

This program coincides with the opening of the Indian Photographing Indian: Zig Jackson’s Journey through Native America at the Andrew Smith Gallery. There will be an opening reception at the Andrew Smith Gallery with the artist on February 12th, 2022, from 7:00-10:00 pm. The show will continue through May 30, 2022.
