Jen van Kaam is an artist, improvisor, and photographer working in Denver and Minneapolis. Specializing in self-portraits, Jen uses characters, makeup, and camera effects to distort our view of beauty and identity.

Jen has also created imagery for Hard Rock, Andrew Zimmern, HelloFresh, and Sigma Beauty, and has shot candids on several commercials, music videos, and reality shows.

Most days, Jen can be found eating ice cream, goofing with the other members of Ladyfriend, petting a stranger’s dog, or writing about herself in the third person.
