Jackie Nickerson's latest series of portraiture, entitled 'TERRAIN,' depicts laborers posing within their working environments. Curiously, however, Nickerson has decided to conceal the workers identities by shielding their faces with various pieces of equipment. This tactic offers viewers an unbiased opportunity for artistic and personal reflection.
Nickerson, who has made a career of examining and photographing environments in sub-Saharan Africa, explains the project by saying,"TERRAIN is about us in the landscape, how we change the world we inhabit at every moment of our being human, and how, for better and for worse, the world that we make in turn changes who we are."
This series provides a powerful commentary on the nature of identity, landscape and commodity, emphasizing that the relationship between these elements results in very real consequences.
