About

Bruce Eesly (b.1984) is a visual artist and gardener based in Berlin, Germany. Working with photography, archives and artificially generated images, his work blurs fact and fiction to disturb commonly accepted historical narratives.

He is interested in the status of photography in the age of AI and its role in shaping our relationship to the natural world. As a gardener, his work is informed by a curiosity for the history and impacts of industrial agriculture and the absurdities of our technological worship. He considers gardening a political act and his practice is an extension of this belief.
