ABOUT MODERN LEISURE
Joshua Jensen-Nagle has long been fascinated with the rich, lusty history of European beaches. In Modern Leisure, Jensen-Nagle continues this exploration in his signature style, capturing sun-soaked vistas of European shorelines. Photographed from different vantage points, Jensen-Nagle’s scenes contrast the scattering of modern day bathers basking in the sun—leisurely escaping everyday life—with the dramatic ancient promontories, unique rock formations, and deep caves found on the coasts of Italy, Portugal, France, and Spain. The artist believes these photographs are not to be interpreted as documentation of places or people in time, but rather as views that stimulate the onlooker’s own emotional memories.
Jensen-Nagle has mounted over fifty exhibitions in the last 12 years, and is collected widely throughout North America, Europe and Asia. He bases his successful full-time art practice in Toronto.
