Growing up in a small, picturesque town halfway between Berlin and Amsterdam, Jens fell in love with photography at an early age. Ever since his uncle presented him with a $5 Agfamatic pocket for his tenth birthday, Lucking has not left the house without a camera.
Drawn by the terrible cuisine and the wet weather, Jens moved to London in 1996. Traveling around the globe for various assignments and personal projects, he eventually traded his beloved British fish 'n chips for California sunsets and now lives with his lovely wife, Nicole of PLAYFULNEST, and his one and only son, Jenson, in Venice Beach.
His award-winning photographs have been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums in Europe and North America, sold in major art auctions and featured in worldwide publications.
