Hi my name is Jenny, I´m a photographer born in Germany and a daughter of polish immigrants.
I always knew that I wanted to be a creator like my grand-grand-father, who was a sculptor.
After finishing my free artist year in 2012 at the Malschule Köln, where I studied classical fine arts, I started my vocational school to become a makeup artist and finished it in march 2013. Through the Makeup Business I had the chance to work with a lot of photographers and my passion for Photography, that I had since being a small girl grew until I decided to make it my profession. I Graduated from the university of applied science in summer 2022 and even had the chance to study one semester in Budapest at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, where I discovered my love for artistic and project based photography.
For my final Bachelor Work I lived one year in Finland, where I also worked with the photographer and journalist Meeri Koutaniemi on several projects and exhibitions.
Working with her showed me the inside of project based and conceptual photography, which I used for my book project “four seasons of happiness”, which I published 2023 with the help of the cultural Association Kulturhof Velbrück e.V. and the Barton Verlag.
I would describe my photography as creative and alternative. My pictures leave space for the viewer's thoughts and stems from the question and definition of identity and personality.
While working several years as a freelancer and in an advertisement agency I also had the chance to work in a team and on customer based projects.This experience teached me coping and organizing skills I can use today for any project I'm working on.
In my spare time, I love to do yoga to start my days right, cook with friends, paint and explore different countries and their cultures. In addition to various free and commercial projects, I am currently mainly working on a project about my documentation of intercultural identity in Europe.
