Dana Jackson, is a self taught photographer and multimedia artist based in Madison,NJ. She creates by the mantra, “Make something out of nothing”. She likes to gather and collect various metals, garments, and natural materials that she finds to use as objects for her work. And from there she begins the design process of using those found
materials spontaneously. She first discovered her talent for photography on a trip to London in 2011. There she met her uncle for the first time who was a professional photographer and engineer. He encouraged her to pursue photography professionally . She has always been told that she has “a great eye” and she is known for her soulful portraits. In 2019, she created unique wearable art eyewear pieces for performance artist , ByHaZe for the music festival Afropunk.
Her work reflects her resilience from her internal and external conflicts . How she has responded to illness , poverty , and struggle through visual art. She aspires to catch the eye and the heart of the world through her incredible transformations of raw materials.
