about / bio
Jasper van den Ende is a visual artist and photographer whose research-based work interacts with the limits and shortcomings of the photographic medium. The focus is on the interplay between the natural and technological where photography is perceived as a natural phenomenon and technological invention.
The overexposed photographs in his ongoing project Exposure Value ZER0̸ are reflecting on the use of night lighting in cities and reveal what is highlighted in the urban environment. Overexposure, a shortcoming of the technique, is deployed for its expressive qualities and indexical properties. The outcomes of his work often challenges the conventions in photography and explore the anatomy of the human-eye where it traditionally has been equated with the camera.
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.
