J. Kern (b. 1978) is an American artist whose work investigates ideas of home, ancestry, and a sense of place. His portraits focus on intimate, interdependent relationships of people, animals, and landscapes as a means of exploring how ancestry shapes identity and how myth intertwines with personal history. His camera has led him from an inquiry into his lineage in the farming communities of Scandinavia and Ireland to the examination of similar communities near his home in Minnesota. 

Increasingly, his attention has been captured by the next generation of young people, who may or may not be the stewards of rural communities and economies in the future. His latest book is titled The UnChosen Ones.
