Work with one of the art world’s
“brighter lights.”

Jane quickly became an important voice in the international photography market after founding Jackson Fine Art in 1989. She was heralded as one of the “brighter lights handling innovative, risk-taking work.” Due to her success exhibiting and selling 20th century vintage and contemporary photography, Jane was featured in many prominent publications, including American Photo, Art & Auction, Art & Antiques, Atlanta Magazine, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Business Week, and Forbes.

In 2003, Jane sold Jackson Fine Art to become the first Director of the Sir Elton John Photography Collection. During her tenure, she bought and sold work through galleries, auction houses, artist estates, and private collectors and helped build the collection into the largest, most significant holdings of vintage and contemporary works in private hands.

Ms. Jackson curated An Instinctive Eye: A Selection of Contemporary Photographs from the Sir Elton John Collection at the PinchukArtCenter in Kiev in 2007 and was advising curator for A Chorus of Light: Photographs from The Sir Elton John Collection for the High Museum of Art in Atlanta in 2000. She also interviewed Sir Elton John for the Tate Modern’s exhibition catalogue of The Radical Eye: Modernist Photography from the Sir Elton John Collection, 2016.

Over the years, Jane has lectured at numerous museums and art institutions, including the Cranbrook Academy of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Milwaukee Museum of Art, and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. She has served on collecting panels for Sotheby’s New York, the Association of International Photographic Art Dealers, and other cultural venues. And she’s been on the boards of a variety of museums and associations, including the Center for Creative Photography, AIPAD, and the executive committee of the board for the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. Jane is based in Atlanta, GA, and is a graduate of Emory University.
