Hello,  I’m Jayne Jackson, an award winning social action photographer       

My last, award-winning project, about victim blaming, ‘Asking For It’ received national media coverage, including a feature by The Independent and BBC South Today News, as well as trending as top 3 on The BBC news website. The project is a series of historical mugshots, which invite the reader to question who is really to blame

I am a mother of two daughters, a feminist and long time volunteer for the charity, 'The Shine Project', which supports teen girls.

HOMEFRONT                  

This collaborative project explores how female lives were / are changed by events in 2020, particularly in terms of work/home situations, mental health and general wellbeing.

Each woman is photographed in a way that they feel represents their unique experience, from a ‘homefront/post war’ perspective. Each image is styled as a 1940s/50s slightly satirical, yet empowered/uplifting image, with interviews about life before, during and after lockdown.

As a body of work, it touches upon specific issues like giving birth during lockdown, home schooling, running a business, health and fitness, cooking etc, but also a variety of general feminist issues. These include the disproportionate amount of unpaid work done by women, such as childcare and caring for other relatives, as well as the 75% of part-time workforce being occupied by females, many running small businesses and often combining this with childcare. Some personal stories reflect on issues such as domestic violence and bereavement.

A project preview is to be exhibited at Bournemouth University, Atrium Gallery from 9th November 2020 (approx 6-8 weeks).  The project is intended to remain LIVE into Spring 2021, documenting women's stories and subsequently by further exhibiting and publishing in book / zine format. 

Funds raised will be used towards production and exhibition and publishing costs.
