Per Bak Jensen

(Danish, born 1949)

Per Bak Jensen is a contemporary Danish photographer known for his meditative photographs. Exploring notions of sublimity and humanity's relationship to nature, Jensen’s large-format photos capture unassuming corners of cities and landscapes. “Perhaps our ultimate understanding of scientific topics is measured in terms of our ability to generate metaphoric pictures of what is going on,” the artist stated. “Maybe understanding is coming up with metaphoric pictures.” Born on April 22, 1949 in Denmark, Jensen studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Jensen's pioneering work has been referred to by some as metaphysical realism, and has received significant attention and acclaim. He has regularly exhibited his work since 1981, in spaces such as the Vestsjællands Kunstmuseum in Sorø, Denmark, and Galleri Niklas von Bartha in London. Jensen currently lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. His works are held in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Bibliothéque Nationale in Paris, and The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
