Going through Jen’s portfolio is a bit of an emotional roller coaster. One minute you’re laughing at a naked man’s naughty bits as he sits astride a horse while being laughed at by another horse, and the next you’re looking at a series of photographs of heroin addicts in the park.
The jolty feeling that Jen gives you is actually incredibly refreshing – here’s a photographer who’s willing to go into undesirable situations to meet the people who dwell in them and not remain a bystander; Jen gets them involved. In her Wig Outs series Jen shoots marginalised women before and after they get dressed for the day, the common similarity they all share being some kind of wig. In Llama Love, Jen visits an elderly health centre where every few months some llamas come to visit to cheer everyone up, and the photos of this are just so, so beautiful.
