Adam Jeppesen

In his work Adam Jeppesen searches for the silence in desolate landscapes and the physical elements the artist surrenders to. The images of remote, rugged landscapes are suffused with a sense of tranquillity, reflection and contemplation. Jeppesen’s work is a search for spirituality, which is found in seclusion, but it also addresses the materiality and transience of the photograph as an object. The journey has left visible traces and blemishes on the photographs. The art works are beyond the traditional experience of space and time, nevertheless they serve as a confirmation for certain moments that nevertheless appear as the enigmatic presentation of a distorted reality.
He is interested in the aesthetic value of the imperfect elements, the search for balance between purity, perfection and the damaged portion therein – the physical vestiges and imprints, which are so easily left behind and so seldom examined. The studio is an equally important part of this process as the journey itself.

Adam Jeppesen, born in 1978 in Kalundborg, Denmark, first gained international recogni-tion with his "Wake" series, which was published in 2008 by Steidl in book format. In 2009, Jeppesen was nominated for both the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize and the KLM Paul Huf Award. His work has been exhibited worldwide and is present in the collection at the Denver Art Museum (USA), the Danish Arts Foundation, the National Public Art Council in Sweden, the National Museum of Photography in Denmark, as well as in numerous private collections. Adam Jeppesen lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
