THE STORY

Early in 2014, NFL running back Steven Jackson began a new journey. At the suggestion of his friend, artist Michael Kalish, Jackson collected the best photographs he had taken during his travels around the world, and attempted to transform a handful of them into new works of art.

On the one hand, it rekindled a passion for art that had seized Jackson’s imagination as a young boy growing up in urban Las Vegas. At the same time, it was one of the most difficult challenges Jackson had ever undertaken, an effort to explore a completely new realm as best he could.
