Savannah Faith Jackson


Savannah Faith Jackson (b. 2001) is a lens-based artist located in the Detroit metropolitan area. Jackson graduated from New York University’s Tisch School of the arts in 2023 with a BFA Photography & Imaging and is currently a masters candidate in the photography department at Cranbrook Academy of Art where she holds a Gilbert Fellowship. Utilizing both archival and new photographs in her work, Jackson reflects on themes of beauty and matrilineal heritage. She explores the significance of ideas and objects that are passed between women, specifically focusing on the experiences of Black-American women. Through various photographic processes Jackson questions notions of memory, impermanence, and rest as they pertain to Black women and girls. 

Recent accomplishments and exhibitions include receiving first prize in the 2023 Photo Review Competition for her image, Morgan in a Moment of Self-Reflection(2023) as well as the inclusion of her image Caleia and Tynisha(2022) in NYU's Center for Black Visual Culture's exhibition, Rest is Power.
