Jelka von Langen

With a keen curiosity, German photographer Jelka von Langen tells stories that are grounded in the present moment. In her portraiture work, she captures an an emotional intensity that invites speculation about what took place before and after the image was taken. Von Langen has an eye for the absurd that allows her to zero in on the unexpected and the humourous. Jelka von Langen studied at the the renowned Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie in Berlin, and her dedication to perfecting her craft is evident across her still life, landscape and portrait work alike.
