Zig Jackson
Zig Jackson is an artist and photographer teaching at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia. An enrolled member of the Three Affiliated Tribes-Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara, Jackson grew up on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in North Dakota. Focusing on his culture and the changing way of life of both urban and reservation Indians, along with the attendant socio-political issues, Jackson uses his work to educate non-natives on the reality of contemporary Indian existence.
Jackson holds a B.S. in education from Northeastern Oklahoma State University and an M.F.A. in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute. He has taught photography at the Institute of American Indian Arts (Santa Fe), San Francisco State University, the University of California at Davis, and the Savannah College of Art and Design. His work has been shown extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad and is represented in the collections of several public and private institutions, including the National Library of Congress, the Jonson Gallery (University of New Mexico), the Institute of American Indian Arts, the Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago), the Joslyn Art Museum (Nebraska), the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Zig Jackson • Native Veterans

Zig Jackson • Road Signs, Tribal Lands and Hot Dogs
Zig Jackson is an American Indian artist who uses photography to de-mythologize his own history and to break down the romanticized stereotypes of Indians perpetuated by popular media and folklore. In the straightforward photographic style of Robert Frank, Jackson captures the world of contemporary Indians, touching upon complex issues of tourism, marketing, myth, power sites, traditions, and stereotyping.

I look for the pretty picture ... [cached]

I look for the pretty picture as my professor Zig Jackson used to say. While reviewing my work in his documentary class one day he casually explained, 'Adrienne, don't be afraid to take a pretty picture simple because you think it's simply 'pretty'.
