Jens Kotlenga

Jens Kotlenga is an educator by profession, a traveller by choice and a photographer by heart. He picked up photography from his parents at age 12 and started doing commercial work in his teens, photographing at proms and weddings to earn pocket money. After graduating from high school he could not make up his mind to pursue photography as a career. He opted for degrees in English literature and History instead. Fortunately though, throughout his career he has been able to derive synergies from all three fields he passionately cares about. After a longish phase of working digitally he went back to analog photography a new years ago. He does mostly B&W photography, usually in medium and large format, but has recently rediscovered the joys of using 35mm film cameras when travelling. After living for lengthy periods in Southern Africa and South-East Asia, Jens is currently based in Germany.
