Born in West Bromwich and raised in Wednesbury, Kate Jackson first started taking photographs of the local area and people in her teens and has continued to do so ever since. She is a member of Laundry, a group of artists who join together to develop and deliver collaborative projects. Much of her work to date is focused within Sandwell as she is passionate about working with people and communities in the area.
She has recently been commissioned to make some work as an artist for Blast! Photography Festival, you can find out more about her work on that here.
