Adam Jeppesen est un photographe né au Danemark en 1978. Il vit et travaille à Buenos Aires.
Adam Jeppesen - WakeAdam Jeppesen’s Wake was assembled over a period of several months in the secluded backwoods of Finland. Taken while traveling on assignment, the photographs document the constantly shifting geography of the artist over the course of seven years. Rather than minister to any notion of Nordic melancholy, the artist reconstructs history into an intuitive, dream-like sequence that reflects the emotional and aesthetic clarity afforded by solitude.
Jeppesen’s large-format photographs are rooted in the tradition of German documentary with its tendency toward classification. This is an impressionistic take on the visual index–one that seeks out the spontaneous and the discarded, the undefined and the uncertain. As the title suggests, the images inhabit that liminal space between darkness and twilight: atmosp...
Exhibition: Adam Jeppesen. Out of Camp Thinking about Photography C/O Berlin is presenting the Out of Camp exhibition by Danish photographer
Adam Jeppesen from July 16th to September 25th, 2016.
The opening will take place on Friday, July 15th, 2016 at 7 pm in the Amerika Haus located in Hardenbergstraße 22-24, 10623 Berlin.
All alone from the north pole to the Antarctic in 487 days – a journey in total solitude. Beyond the traditional experience of space and time. Always with the camera in tow to document the rugged landscapes and vast expanses. The photos serve as a con rmation for certain mo- ments that nevertheless appear as the enigmatic presentation of a distorted reality. Did I really experience it like that? And how can I convey this existential experience? In the current series, Adam Jeppesen reconstructs his adventures less with the content of the photos ...
Exhibition: « Vaca Muerta » by Adam Jeppesen“We dream of traveling through the universe – but is not the universe within ourselves? The depths of our spirit are unknown to us – the mysterious way leads inwards. Eternity with its worlds – the past and future – is in ourselves or nowhere.” (Novalis, Philosophical Writings, p 25, Suny Press, 1997)
Gallery Taik Persons is pleased to present a selection of Adam Jeppesen’s œuvre from the series Flatlands Camp Project along with his most recent works in the solo exhibition entitled Vaca Muerta [Dead Cow].
Seven years ago, the artist embarked on a 487 days unaccompanied and relentless journey taking him through the Americas from the Arctic to Antarctica. The presented works are devoid of people, only showing vast, isolated and savage landscapes, completely uninhabited &n...

Do you remember the first time ? at Atlas Gallery
Do you remember the first time ? features works by contemporary photographers Olivo Barbieri, Jim Goldberg, Nathan Harger, Adam Jeppesen and Paolo Ventura, presented for the first time in London exclusively at Atlas Gallery. Many of these exemplary contemporary artists have been exhibited internationally, and are included in museum and distinguished private collections worldwide, but have never before been exhibited in a commercial gallery in the United Kingdom.
This exhibition presents the opportunity to experience with new eyes key works by known artists who are redefining the boundaries of contemporary photography.
Olivio Barbieri takes aerial photographs of cityscapes and landscapes, creating images that look like scale models.
Nathan Harger creates high contrast black and white photographs of man-made...
Photography Group ShowPhotography always puts reality into frames. The photographer takes a picture of something and thereby decides to leave everything else out of it, whereas it might well be possible that the things left out are far more important than the objects in the picture. We tend to object to this by saying that photography violates or undermines truth and reality because it distracts us from the essential events happening at the same time. In a way, that is a valid objection: a picture evidently will never be able to render or reproduce reality more genuine than reality does itself. You always "should have been there yourself", to put it in a slightly trivial way. We know by experience that every observation and perception of reality is "colored". Why is it then that truth is such a problematic issue in photogr...
Adam Jeppesen SaimaaWith his exhibition, Saimaa, Adam Jeppesen presents new photographs as well as the video installation One - Video for 3 Screens. Jeppesen's photo book Wake (Steidl Publishing) is also shown at the exhibition for the first time. All of his works are based on takings from journeys to various countries during the last seven years and, together as a whole, they can be seen as a poetic depiction of the world and of life in their many aspects.
The exhibition sucks us into a photographic universe, in which there is no concrete, common history or concept knitting together the individual pieces of work. Instead, a fragmented look at our world, where ordinary places, spaces and situations appear unfamiliar and mysteriously inciting is created--as if there were more at stake than meets the eye.
The photographs are characteriz...
