Jeremy regularly presents his projects in Germany and Europe. His artwork has also been presented in China, Russia, and the USA. Jeremy is a member of BBK Berlin (the Professional Artist’s Association) and, since 2024, the Lichtenberg Cultural Advisory Committee.

Whilst studying in London in 2015, Jeremy exhibited his photography project Rip Off at the Today Museum in Beijing. In 2018, he was shortlisted for BLOOOM Award in Germany and exhibited his photography series 8am Walks at Hoxton Arches in London. In 2019, Jeremy attended the residency program In-Between at Green Hill Gallery in Berlin and was later shortlisted for the Signature Art Prize in London. Also in 2019, Jeremy exhibited 8am Walks as an installation at the Affordable Art Fair in London. In 2020, Jeremy participated in two collaborative art projects: Neukölln Stories in Berlin and RAUM SPACE Festival in Kaliningrad. Earlier in 2020, Jeremy was awarded the ReA! Art Prize in Milan and shortlisted for the Verzasca Foto Awards in Switzerland. 8am Walks was published in print in FRESH EYES - New European Photography in 2020 and also exhibited at Photo Kyiv. In 2021, Jeremy facilitated workshops for 48 Stunden Neukölln in Berlin. Jeremy’s first solo show, YOU ARE HERE, was presented in 2021 at DISKURS Gallery.

Jeremy’s essay The Moth in Me (and in Steve) will be published in Neuwerk Magazine, by Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle, in 2024.
