Enda Bowe's work is concerned with cinematic narratives, and the search for light and beauty in the ordinary. Through graphic compositions he persuades our focus towards the emotional depth and tenderness that is synonymous with his work. Often concentrating on youth culture, he directs talent with sensitivity to produce insightful and captivating performances. Enda draws on a broad technical knowledge for each of his commissions be it editorial, commercial or shooting alongside film; he is driven to produce projects that feel deeply personal and have a depth of sentiment and resonance. His influences include writers John McGahern and Carson McCullers, poet Liz Berry, and directors Lynne Ramsey, Eve Arnold, Lenny Abrahamson and Shane Meadows. Enda presents his work through the publication of photographic monographs and has exhibited his work in numerous galleries, including (but not limited to) the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), the National Portrait Gallery (London), Fotohof (Salzburg), Red Hook Gallery (New York), The Gallery of Photography (Dublin) and The Visual Centre of Contemporary Art (Carlow). Enda won the Zürich Portrait Prize in 2019 and received second place in the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize at the National Gallery in both 2018 and 2019. Clients include Visa, The New Yorker, Mugler, Isabel Marant, Adidas, BBC, Marie Curie, Financial Times Magazine and M Le Monde. Enda is Irish and continues to live and work between London and Dublin.
