ABOUT

đź–ŤJoshua Jensen-Nagle was born and raised in New Jersey. In 1999 he came to Canada to attended Ryerson University and began to develop his distinct photographic style. Since then he has become an established artist who has exhibited internationally in museums and galleries. His works are photographs but not in the typical documentary style that we associate photography with. Jensen-Nagle’s work is more reminiscent of painting than photography, he explains: “One thing I try to achieve is a painterly aspect in my work, it’s how I understand photography” Jensen-Nagle’s techniques, used to achieve his unique style, include the use of expired Polaroid film, which he says gives an extraordinary colour palette and softens the image. He also paints directly on his photographs and then re-shoots them to create an image that pushes the boundaries between the mediums.

Ă€ PROPOS

đź–ŤNĂ© aux États Unis, il arrive au Canada en 1999, oĂą il Ă©tudie Ă  l’universitĂ© Ryerson et commence Ă  dĂ©velopper son style photographique très personnel. C’est ainsi qu’il devient un artiste reconnu, après avoir exposĂ© dans plusieurs galeries et musĂ©es Ă  niveau international. Ses oeuvres sont des photographies qui parfois se brouillent avec la peinture en devenant des hybrides. “Je cherche toujours Ă  obtenir la picturalitĂ© dans la photo” explique  Joshua Jensen-Nagle Ă  propos de son approche de la photographie.  La technique de Jensen-Nagle inclut l’utilisation de Polaroids pĂ©rimĂ©s, qui permettent d’adoucir l’image et d’obtenir une palette de couleurs exceptionnelle. En outre, il peint directement sur la photo avant de la re-photographier afin de rĂ©aliser une image unique qui concilie les deux mĂ©diums.
