Between 2009 and 2013, Jacobson completed Place (Series). These minimal still-life photographs depict rectangles of various sizes and surfaces placed in a variety of man-made and natural settings. They suggest the contradictions between architecture and nature as well as the idea that the built world comes from choice and desire. Inherent in this work is a questioning of what constitutes an image and what defines abstraction, both of which had been inherent in his earlier, out-of-focus images. The blank boards in many of the new images suggest notions of the infinite, echoing the very white and very dark portraits Jacobson began twenty years before. A monograph of Place (Series) was published by Radius Books in 2015, and includes a poem by noted poet Maureen N. McLane.
