Gillian Jackson was born and raised in the north of England. She attended the University of Warwick in the UK receiving a BA in Sociology. In 1982, she moved to Bermuda where, inspired by the clear bright light, startling colours and contrasts, she began studying and pursuing photography.
Since the early 1980’s, Gillian has traveled and photographed extensively throughout Europe and the U.S. She has used this experience in her work, consistently trying to capture and frame beauty wherever it may be found, either the obvious, or, more commonly, in more obscure surroundings.
Two important themes of her photography are found in architecture and the study of natural settings. Gillian has lived in Boston since 1990 and her work has been exhibited in the U.K., Bermuda, Singapore, France and the U.S. with a permanent installation in Milton Hospital, Milton, MA through L’Attitude Gallery, Newbury St., Boston. Her work is also part of many private collections in those locations.
