"Five years ago, British photographer Jackie Nickerson traveled to Zimbabwe for what she thought would be a short visit. Struck by the poise of the farm workers she met along the way, Nickerson spent the next two-and-a-half years driving across Zimbabwe, South Africa, Malawi, and Mozambique in a flatbed truck, snapping hundreds of portraits of men and women in the fields. The result of her journey is Farm, a book of images whose arresting elegance belies their quotidian subject matter. Tinted with muted colors to mimic the blinding effect of the African sun, the photographs render the rough textures of laborers' lives--mud-caked feet, wrinkles finely etched by decades of dry heat--with almost hypnotic precision...By combining a fashion photographer's aesthetic with a photojournalist's unflinching realism, Nickerson, like her subjects, transforms the raw material of ordinary life into something extraordinary."Reseña del editor:
After a career as a magazine photographer Jackie Nickerson quit the commercial world, bought a truck and spent two and a half years travelling through Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe. She photographed in the small towns and on the corporate plantations, making portraits of workers in their workplace. The result is the forging of a new visual language that creates a sense of elegance, dignity and compassion in the face of daily toil. "Farm" is a view of Africa outside the language of photojournalism and the previous depictions of the glories of tribal culture.
