Jasper Bastian, born in 1989, is a German-American photographer. He holds an MA in photography from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Dortmund, and studied photojournalism at the Danish School of Media and Journalism. Applying diverse visual strategies, Bastian’s photographic work addresses modern concepts of territory and the intricate relationship between identity and place.

In spring 2023, his first monograph, "Gandras - Land of the White Stork," was published by Charcoal Press. His photographs have also been featured in The New Yorker, Financial Times Weekend Magazine, The Washington Post, and Die Zeit, among others.
