Jason Gardner tells stories, using photography and video within the framework of Visual Anthropology. He is passionate about music, culture, and ritual, and how they impact human expression.

For over 15 years, throughout 15 countries, Jason has visually documented the ritual and festival of Carnival, focusing on traditional, folkloric, and community celebrations. A selection of photographs and writing has been published as We the Spirits, GOST Books, UK (2024). In 2013, Jason published A Flower in the Mouth, a photobook about the culture, music and rituals of Carnaval in Pernambuco, Brazil (Visual Anthropology Press, USA).

In 2022, his project was selected as a Top 50 portfolio by Photolucida’s Critical Mass, and GEO Magazine France published a ten-page portfolio of his work. His photography has appeared in The New York Times, The Guardian, Lenscratch, Financial Times, Sunday Times Magazine (UK), This is Colossal, Rolling Stone, Le Parisien, Foto Magazin (Germany), New York Magazine, NPR.org, and SPIN Magazine.
