Ted Jackson, a longtime photographer for The Times Picayune in New Orleans, was twice part of the newspaper’s Pulitzer-winning public service projects, including the 1997 series “Oceans of Trouble,” a comprehensive look at the impending collapse of the world’s fisheries, and its 2005 coverage of Hurricane Katrina.  He spent two years with the Daily Iberian in New Iberia, La., before joining the Times Picayune in 1984.  In 1989, he photographed his first major photo essay, “Desire: Death of  Dream,” on life in the Desire neighborhood in New Orleans.  Mr. Jackson’s year-long series of photos documenting a local eighth-grade class as they prepared for state testing won the 2003 American Society of Newspaper Editors Award for Community Photojournalism.  His numerous other projects have included the opening of the Berlin Wall, the Persian Gulf War, life in Cuba and political upheaval in Haiti.  He graduated from Southern Miss in 1984.  He was inducted into the MCJ Hall of Fame in 2007.
