For over a decade, Joshua Jensen-Nagle has captivated the viewer with his evocative photographs and singular aesthetic. Best known for his dreamy large scale beaches and romantic European vistas, Jensen-Nagle’s photographs of faraway places impart a nostalgic mood on the viewer.
“For over a decade, I have been photographing beachscapes and have spent the past few years hanging out of helicopters across 4 continents and 8 countries, getting a bird’s eye view of sun lovers around the world and exploring aerial imagery. At first glance, these works may read as abstract, but with a closer look, viewers peruse umbrellas, sunbathers, swimmers and surfers scattered about the scene, creating a colorful composition. My lens not only captures the blissful moments of those in the photograph, but also allows the viewer to reflect on their own memories and attempts to evoke similar emotions of pure happiness.”
Joshua bases his successful full-time art practice in Toronto, and has become a prominent fixture in the arts community. Having mounted over fifty exhibitions in the last 12 years, he has developed a strong standing in the art world, and is collected widely throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
