Neil Jackson, Photojournalist
Radical photojournalist, Neil Jackson - who works in construction so as not to allow
the corporate media to contaminate his work - has spent twenty years on the road, travelling to the heart of
conflict from battle lines as disparate as the Bosnian war, the streets of Ulster and the riots of England.
Because he remained
detached from corporate media, the self-funded photographer has retained the freedom to do with his images what he wishes
(unlike employed photographers, who lose their copyright to their employers, and are therefore simply tools of the media machine).
Neil has decided
to allow anarchist and radical groups to use his images copyright free, because, he says, “You've got to get
involved at grass roots, you got to make a stand. As teachers, journalists, etc., we cannot simply be observers.
The hacks on the right wing press and the grasping bosses of the colleges and unis have taken a stance and a side - so should
we. And our stand is the other side of the barrier, facing them. Time is running out as the dumbing down
process escalates. They are the enemy, they always have been. Not peasants half a world away. The battle-line
is the human mind, and it is being lost every time a worker stares at a TV screen all evening, every time a journalist watches
silently as a story gets spiked because 'it might upset the advertisers.' It is being won every time someone is woken up to
what's going on. The enemy are the powerful.
His John Pilger-endorsed work Conflict and
his general photojournalism images (Flickr) can be viewed via the links below.

“As a child I wanted so
desperately for magic to be real. I would work for hours collecting what I hoped were just the right combination of ingredients
to make some type of magic potion that would provide me with special powers….I found such magic in words viewed in
a postformal matrix and I observe and practice that magic everyday.” (Kincheloe, 2006, Reading, Writing, Thinking,
