Jens is a visual artist and photographer. He was born when Coca Cola sent the “yes girl” around the world. 12 years later he shot his first double exposures and let his classmates box with themselves. At the same time he practiced draping clothes with pencil and sketch pad. As a student he copied artists such as Caravaggio or Renato Guttuso, whereby his pictures “Il gruppo” and “La discussione” were particularly appealing to him.

The brushes were followed by new techniques and new cameras. His photos show discoveries, tell little stories. The artistic work is very conceptual and characterized by his studies in political economy and psychology, by  social aspects and fantasy. /mara.C

“Photography is realizing ideas with my camera. I am inspired by the dialectic of things, the dialogue between the two sides of the same coin. It is often about the downsides of our viewing habits. Experimenting with rules, limits or prejudices is very motivating.” /Jens
