JENS KOCH

Photographer

Berlin-based photographer Jens Koch’s art is rather daring. His photos are coincidentally cheeky, charming and empathic. Spectators often award them for their affecting and liberating qualities, which cause amazement and reflection. By looking at Koch’s portrayed characters, people frequently imagine observing themselves. For a very good reason. Photography is art. We want to look at one another. In Jens Koch’s view, his photos are contemporaries, “Weltanschauung”, pop, spectacle. They’re always on the move, swinging with a vengeance. They seldom feed on silence, but always on astonishment. Koch doesn’t look for the spotlight himself, instead he lets his pictures do the talking. Born in 1981 and raised in Leipzig, Jens Koch was based in Cologne before he found the ideal hotbed for his photographic language in Berlin. At 17 he managed to go onto Berlinale’s red carpet to release the shutter for portraits. His first commissions came from newspapers after he’d taken photos of befriended actor of his. To him, photography is a pop-cultural tool. Though fine precision work is very obviously underlying his art, his photos seem easy. Jens Koch is by far no insider’s tip anymore and that’s a good thing, too. He has taken photos with great candour ever since he was 15 years old. An enlightened fascination for the people he’s encountering with the camera manifests itself in his work. He describes himself as a „collector of characters“. This aptly, but narrowly articulated self- understanding is due to his modesty. To him the centrepieces of his work and life are types and personalities, Robert de Niro and Lady Gaga, Mario Adorf and Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler, Matt Damon and Jared Leto, Udo Lindenberg and Iris Berben, Daniel Brühl and Ben Kingsley. His photos form a diary of his relationships with the people whom he’s giving something. Without demanding something from them. He’s constantly breaking up the distance between his camera and the portrayed. Jens Koch is capable of educing character within minutes. That’s his art.
