Sleepless in Soho is Joshua K. Jackson’s debut monograph.
For three years, Jackson walked through the lamp-lit and neon-filled streets of Soho, turning to photography initially as a way to escape the frustrations of insomnia.
Jackson’s work from this period, reveals the complex and intense atmosphere in London’s best known entertainment district — observing the juxtaposition between the Soho of today and the faded character of its past.
Guided on by the flickering of neon lights
I know well the hours filled with sleepers dreams
I search them peacefully as I journey through the nights.
(An extract from Sarah Tucker’s poem included in the book)
The photographs were made between January 2017 and December 2019.
