    Jasper van den Ende is a photographer who interacts with the (technical) limits and shortcomings of image-making technologies to explore socio-ecological and environmental implications. His research evolves from art-based fieldwork practices in the natural, technological, and urban environment where embodied knowing and empirical findings are put in favour in such a way that it informs and reforms, or rather, co-produces the work with the environment or site situation. This results in self-developed methods to map and reveal the inequalities of exposure levels in cities or in experimental ways to visualise what escapes the human eye.

    As a graduate from the Willem de Kooning Academy (2022) in Rotterdam, he was nominated for the Young Blood Award in the annual group exhibition Best of Graduates in the Ron Mandos gallery. His project Exposure Value ZER0̸ is awarded the Harry Pennings Prize 2023, and he had his first solo-exhibition during Lichtkunst Gouda (2022). Van den Ende presented and exhibited in the Backlight Photofestival (2023) where his work was supported by the Goethe Institute with a Culture Moves grant from the European Union.
