Jens Ingvarsson (b. 1984) is a Ukrainian-born photographer, living in New York City.
Having spent his twenties traveling and living like a local in various parts of the world, he immersed himself in foreign cultures and languages for almost a decade, often documenting his experiences and insights with a trusty Contax camera. This in turn has resulted in a deeper and better understanding of his own culture and heritage and a desire to look through the prism of his identity in the ongoing personal and commissioned photo projects.
Although a self-taught photographer, Jens draws inspiration from the 19th century academic artists, with his minimalist approach to subjects and the almost exclusive usage of natural lighting.
His recent clients include Vogue China, Singapore, Ukraine & Spain, WSJ, Document Journal, Allure, New York magazine, T Magazine Singapore, New Balance, FILA, Net-A-Porter, Bergdorf Goodman, Rebecca Taylor, SLVRLAKE Denim, Merlette NYC, La Bouche Rouge, Argent, Banana Republic, Ilia Beauty, Max Mara, & Other Stories, New Balance, Wellpeople, Madewell, Anthropologie, Shopbop, La Mer, Cuyana, Vince, Bloomingdales, Zara, Cartier and Tiffany & Co just to name a few.
