Island Nights - 3 sizes
For the past fifteen years, Joshua Jensen-Nagle has captivated the viewer with his evocative large-scale photographs. He has become known for his dreamy imagery and experimentation with photography as a means to capture and express emotion. His new series, Sunsets and Fireworks, is a combination of techniques layered together. Utilizing the latest in digital technology, Joshua photographs inspirational sunsets, prints them large-scale, and then re-photographs them outside, setting off fireworks in their foreground, ultimately creating a celebratory effect and moments of underlying reflection.
He states, "Throughout the pandemic, as days, weeks and months passed, I, like many, found myself looking for pleasure in the simpler things. With my typical travel schedule no longer an option, I longed for inspiration in a world that seemed void. I took to appreciating the sunset each evening. This series celebrates their impact on me as an artist and expresses the light they brought into my life during otherwise dark days."
