Collector’s Series Talk
“Collecting Photographs: Snapshots, Vernacular, and Beyond”
Robert E. Jackson in Conversation with Peter Nisbet

Robert E. Jackson has collected photography since 1997. In the fall of 2007, his collection was the subject of an exhibition and catalogue entitled “The Art of the American Snapshot: 1888-1978” which was on view at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. The show traveled to the Amon Carter Museum in early 2008. In 2011, “Pure Photography” was published by Ampersand Gallery & Fine Books in Portland, Oregon. It included approximately sixty images chosen by Jackson to embody the non-narrative aspect of snapshot photography. His photos were included in the 2011 bestselling book “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” by Ransom Riggs. In October of 2012, Seattle based Marquand Books published photos from Jackson’s color snapshot collection in the book “The Seduction of Color”. In June of 2013, Pace/MacGill Gallery in New York City featured his collection in a show entitled “Snap Noir: Snapshot Stories”. The latest show devoted to an aspect of his collection is “Polaroids: Personal, Private, Painterly” which is on view at the Bellevue Art Museum in Bellevue, Washington from October 2018 to March 2019. Jackson holds a MA degree in art history from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (1978) and an MBA from the University of Texas, Austin (1981).
