Joshua Jensen-Nagle (born in Washington, New Jersey) is a contemporary photographer, recognized as a prominent Canadian artist after studying photography at Ryerson University and establishing his career in Toronto. Best known for his dreamy aerial beaches, expansive mountainscapes, romantic European vistas, and dramatic old-world interiors, Jensen-Nagle’s immersive, large-scale photos invite viewers to lose themselves within the frameless images - often evoking emotional, nostalgic or aspirational associations.
In his most recent series, Endless Summer and Winter, Jensen-Nagle captures scenes of leisure from a distance, often hanging out of a helicopter, transforming people on beaches and ski-slopes into colorful specks clustered on long stretches of sand or snow like abstract elements. His bird-eye views offer a reflection on the artist’s own memories, of childhood summers spent along the New Jersey shore and winters in the Poconos, and call upon the viewer to attach their own memories.
Having mounted over fifty exhibitions in the last 12 years, including at the Griffin Museum in Boston and the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Joshua has developed a strong standing in the art world and is collected widely throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.
Highlighted art fair presence includes Art Toronto, Photo London, Context Art Miami, Pulse Miami, SCOPE Miami, Art New York, Art Palm Beach, and Art Market San Francisco. His work can also be found in numerous private and corporate collections including Microsoft, MasterCard International, Hilton Hotels, Target Canada Corporation, Maple Leaf, Cirque De Soleil, and Transcontinental, among others. He has seen his work featured in a variety of publications, including Art In America, Canadian Art, Fashion and Harper’s.
