She had her first individual exhibition in 2003 at the galerie Pascal Polar in Brussels. She was selected for the collective exhibition 175 years of Belgium by the Belgian Photography Museum and at the Espace Blanche [2] with Frédéric Beigbeder as her mentor. She exposed with Wim Delvoye and Delphine Boël at the Salle des Beaux Arts du Sablon for the Pierre BergéYves Saint Laurent Foundation in 2007.[3] She made in 2009 an exhibition Les Sangtiments at the Young Gallery with her human body work from pictures made (with special admission) from parts of the human body found in the clinic rooms of hospitals.[4] In 2012 she had her exposition in the SohoPhoto Gallery in New York City.[5] Now Jennifer Des is working on the high-definition photography of the personalized iris on a cosmic background for the EYE-D project exhibited at the Mercedes House [6] in 2011, at the Top Marques in Monaco in 2014 and at the Café de Paris in Monte Carlo March 2015.[7] In May 2015 at the Park Lenôtre Mougins with Robert Hossein and Jean-Paul Belmondo[8] Invités d'Honneurs.

EYE-D Project: Retinal imprint[edit]

Jennifer Des creates each of her pieces in relation to the model and the request. In addition to its retinal imprint, the stellar presence highlights the dominant planets. With the help of a professional astrologer, an astral map is made. Jennifer Des gets her inspiration from this to add extra material to her art. She then integrates it to the eye imprint. Her clients can also have their own portrait, as well as a portrait with their family member's eyes. Human eyes, just like DNA or fingerprints define our unique identity.[15][16][17]

ETERNITY Vision: a new universal and individual perception of astral proportions[edit]

Jennifer Des redefines her subject's individuality as a planetary center of new cosmic dimensions ready for eternity. As she shot the eyes of her mother, she discovered a new meaning to eternity and what this could represent for us.[18] Jennifer had an expostion at the Gallery Riccadonna Rue Grimaldi in Monaco on the 5th of July with her recent works.[19]
