Joshua Jensen-Nagle: Dreams & Journeys
For the past fifteen years, Joshua Jensen-Nagle has captivated the viewer with his evocative large-scale photographs. Best known for his dreamy beaches, expansive mountainscapes, romantic European vistas and dramatic old-world interiors, Jensen-Nagle’s immersive photos invite viewers to lose themselves within the images, often evoking emotional, nostalgic or aspirational associations.
In his series, Dreams and Journeys, Jensen-Nagle continues to explore the way people interact with their environment during times of leisure; people escaping the hustle of their everyday lives at work, and spending time creating memories, enjoying vacations and visiting places they have always dreamed of. “Whether it is on a beach, a mountain, or in a city, people all gather happily together to experience this world. This interaction captivates me.I think many people spend their whole life dreaming of journeying to places that have made a mark in our history.” Photographing those dreams and aspirations, Jensen-Nagle attempts to turn those moments into emotions and memories. “Hopefully, my work catches the feelings people leave behind when traveling and shares their experience with others.”
