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 WSJ, Vogue Ukraine & Spain, Manifesto, T Magazine Singapore, Allure, Odda, Favorite, New York magazine, Document Magazine, Barneys NY, Tommy Hilfiger, Theory, Vince, Club Monaco, Lou & Grey, Revlon, Paul Andrew, Uniqlo, Bloomingdales, YNAP and Mansur Gavriel just to name a few.
