Jackson Hallberg (1993) is an American born artist. Working primarily with photography, he is currently based in New York City and is represented by the Brooklyn based gallery Rumney Guggenheim. His works test the integrity and boundaries of image constructs and contrast hyperrealities with banal photographic artifacts. He holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and also studied at the Spéos Photographic Institute (Paris, FR).
The ways in which pictures are mechanically created, reproduced and disseminated today, have encouraged and activated the most widespread participation photography has ever seen. Images have become passive, and viewers submissive. My work has been a reaction to this overflow of imagery; making photographs that activate scrutiny and encourage a search for photographic integrity.
