In his photographic work, Délio Jasse often interweaves found images with clues from past lives (found passport photos, family albums) to draw links between photography – in particular the concept of the ‘latent image’ – and memory. Jasse is also known for experimenting with analogue photographic printing processes, including cyanotype, platinum and early printing processes such as ‘Van Dyke Brown’, as well as developing his own printing techniques.

Recent exhibitions include: the Dak’art Biennale international exhibition, Dakar (2016); Angolan Pavilion, 56th Venice Biennale (2015); a solo show at SMAC Gallery, Cape Town (2014); Savvy Contemporary, Berlin (2013); and Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon (2013). He was one of three finalists in the BES Photo Prize (2014) and won the Iwalewa Art Award in 2015.
