Through his poignant series of images, Jackson explores the lasting impacts of migration through a familial lens. The work touches on shifting concepts of home, identity and the political landscape of Britain during the last sixty years. In a statement about “From a Small Island,” Jackson closes with the following words:
“Time of course is not ours to own, as we are all powerless to prevent its passage and powerless too to prevent our march into infirmity. Therefore the loss of who we once were within the inevitable journey across the sea of life from cradle to the grave cannot be halted but its story nonetheless should be told.”
