Jesse Egner is an artist working primarily with photography and video.

His work has recently been included in exhibitions at Seigfred Gallery, Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle, Washington; El Rincón Social and Box 13 ArtSpace in Houston, Texas; Columbia College in Chicago, Illinois; Academy Art Museum in Easton, Maryland; the Festival de Arte Lanzarote in Lanzarote, Spain; and the Pingyao International Photography Festival in Pingyao, China.
