Photograph by Jackie Nickerson—Jack Shainman Gallery, New York

Why doesn’t Nickerson follow the traditional path of “concerned” documentary photography, identifying individuals affected by an issue, and showing the particular details of their lives? Indeed, she rarely shows us any human faces in this project at all, and she totally erases important distinctions of nationality and culture within her diverse assortment of subjects. In effect, she hopes to reveal by concealing; she informs by holding back. —Myles Little

Jackie Nickerson’s Terrain is on view January 16 - February 15, 2014 at Jack Shainman Gallery in New York.
