Jennifer is a Fine Art and Commercial Photographer. Her work focuses on Fashion-, Narrative Portraiture and Travel Photography.
German by birth she was educated in Hamburg and Los Angeles. Her former profession as a fashion designer has a strong impact on her present work. As a photographer she works very intuitive and draws her inspiration mainly through subcultures derived from extensive travel that takes her to remote locations.
The almost Documentary Photography comes to play as an intrinsic act which is nourished by a genuine interest in understanding cultures and liberation on a deeper level.
Soaking up the wonders
My approach is not an objective and independent observing. It is rather an understanding and feeling myself as a part of nature and responding to it in my own unique way. I am interested in what is beyond and often hidden. In the city`s periphery where the urban starts to crumble I feel getting very close to see what´s underneath.
By offering myself to the world authentically, I can lose control to explore the unknown and random of life´s complexity and unpredictability. Wonder lies in nature´s order and disorder, in darkness as well as in light.
