Welcome to my photo series website! My name is Jordan Ewert and I’m an image series photographer who creates photography & video series rooted in people, places, and concepts. Most of my work is stylized or involves photo compositing techniques. I currently reside and work in the Detroit / Metro area.

If you are interested in hiring me for professional photo & video services head over to my commercial website, which contains more information about promotional portraits, senior portraits, modeling, engagements, weddings, events, editorial, video, and retouching services.


 

Selected Photography Collections


 

About Me

I am a Detroit photographer fascinated in how we view the world around us. I take pictures of people, places, and life itself.

My photography has developed over time into conscious collections that revolve around specific people or locations as well as “accidental” accumulations of work from all over, which have developed into collections of observations over time. My work revolves around the preservation of memory and usually dips into surreal or alternative realities because I’m interested in altered states of consciousness.

I have a BFA in painting from the University of Wisconsin—Stout and have been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil. Unfortunately, most of these drawings and paintings have vanished. Since 2008, however, I have been taking pictures and archiving my favorite shots into a larger image database than can be viewed and licensed online.

Besides photography I enjoy building things, learning about technology, watching independent films, and reading books about historical events. Currently I’m pursuing my MFA in photography from Eastern Michigan University.

My portrait photography collections highlight the characteristics & personalities of people by the choices of chosen (or manipulated) environments that surround them. I’ve always enjoyed the dreamlike aspects people envision themselves being apart of, either in their own lives or as a reflection of specific archetypes.

Locations I’ve traveled to range from the outskirt villages of Bulgaria to the vast cityscapes of New York City. Unlike traditional photo-journalism, I like to play around with the potential an image has after I take it. This ranges from simple color adjustments to the dismantling and re-contextualization of key structures in their environment(s). I work this way because I want to establish a more suggestible connection that refers to the unknown or unreal.

Currently I’m involved with more experimental video projects that play with the temporal dimension of time as well as experimental narrative processes.
