German-American photographer Ina Jungmann spent her formative years in three different continents that shaped her creative eye. Thus, her landscapes and cityscapes reflect her cross-cultural experience. Growing up in Japan, Germany, and the United States the need to communicate in different languages intensified her sensitivity to visual communication and photography.
Educated at UCLA and the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in Halle, Germany, Jungmann studied with acclaimed photographers James Welling and Rudolf Schäfer and did an internship with Miyako Ichiuchi in Japan.
In 2011, during a class excursion to Syria with Rudolf Schäfer, she captured the last impressions of peaceful life in Syria, just days before the civil war that has devastated the country erupted.
Currently based in Los Angeles, Jungmann continues to explore new territory and to produce distinctive works depicting everyday moments of the world around her.
