With a light and forthright touch, Jason Jackson writes about the changing world in an industrial landscape. His chapbook The Unit is a quiet and moving work of prose alongside his stark and haunting images.
"Some of the men picketed the front gates and we’d ride down there after school. There’d be four or five of them standing around, hands in pockets. They had a little fire going and no one ever seemed to be saying much. We kept our distance, rode around the back, looked at the bits where the diggers had started lifting earth, where the cranes had started to rip the walls off the buildings. Some of the windows were smashed and we dared each other to throw rocks, but we never did. There were birds flying in, flying out. You could still hear the machines." [extract from The Unit by Jason Jackson.]
