Jackie Nickerson

Jackie Nickerson‘s photographs need no explanation. These images are part of her ‘Farm’ series, shot in South Africa. They are moving and powerful beyond words. After a successful career in commercial photography, Nickerson ditched her magazine job, bought a truck and traveled 2 and a half years through¬†Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
A woman much to my liking.

  1. These are really lovely, thought provoking photographs. I saw the patched oilcloth “skirt” photo in a simple, clean lined room in an interiors magazine. Interesting to see it in context and be able to connect the clothing with a face.

    My Alabama Chanin book arrived. I think this is the best book I have ever seen in my life! Thank you for recommending it. I look forward to sewing. I loved every single piece.

  2. Hello Kathrin,
    I couldn’t find a contact button on your blog.
    Can you please send me an e-mail as I have a little question for you.
    Thank you!

    I thought I better comment on how much I enjoy everything you post. You seem so kindred to myself and I don’t want you to decide to stop blogging again without knowing you have fans that are perhaps silent but love all your posts..

    The images above (and on Jackie Nickerson’s site) really moved me. There is so much dignity and pride portrayed in her series. I don’t remember how I found her, probably by just wandering. Also really glad, you like Chanin’s book. I can’t even decide what to make from her book. It’s always about making (or is it taking?) the time, isn’t it?

    Hi Helen, thanks so much for taking the time to comment. And as if you read my mind, I was very much in doubt over the weekend, if the blog had the same quality as before when I made lots of things and posted tutorials. It is encouraging to know that there are silent readers like you that can relate to the jumbles of my mind. Thank you so much!!
