About Jenny Lens

Punk-Dress-06-JennyLens

Jenny Lens, BA (CSUN), MFA (CalArts), Dean’s List, exhibited art prior to photography. Most published early west coast punk photographer, first gen, 1976-80. “Punk Pioneers,” from Rizzoli/Universe, solo photo book. Passionate about animal rights, environment, Bernie, art, old movies, reading. Prefers swimming and walking to punk shows. Prefers Broadway and Classical to Punk. Documented purely cos this vital cultural revolution was exciting. Slash mag and the people involved were so much FUN!

Misses the freedom and fun, camaraderie and joy of live shows, before commercialism and high cost of living took hold. Misses Claude Kick Boy and Joe Strummer. What would they say now? Loved the fashions, makeup and creativity, which now are commonplace everywhere. We were the radicals. WE changed the world’s visuals and sounds.

Taught computer apps and design at UCLA, SMC and computer training centers. Creating online classes for solopreneurs and creatives: photography for bloggers and fun, ecommerce, web design, legal issues, licensing, merch, content, healing, personal empowerment and more. Benefits of tech and lifelong learning emphasized. For fun and profit. And a fun community. Yes, FUN is a large component of creativity and life. Teaching and making art. My life.

I always called myself “an earth mother hippie punk” … now “bad ass alpha bitch, legendary punk photographer” … all terms others have given me, as terms of endearment and empowerment!
