ABOUT THE ARTIST


Jan got into photography when he was 18. His main focus was land- and seascapes, later on he developed an interest in portrait and documentary photojournalism, which are nowadays  his main themes.


'The central theme throughout my work is the contrast of human being overwhelmed by power of nature; and forces he cannot understand. Feelings of alienation, loneliness and nostalgia are discreetly used to underline the ephemeral presence of human life.'

Jan begon met fotografie toen hij 18 was. Zijn belangrijkste focus was land- en zeegezichten, later ontwikkelde hij een interesse in portret- en documentaire fotojournalistiek, wat tegenwoordig zijn hoofdthema's zijn.


'Het centrale thema in mijn werk is het contrast van de mens overweldigd door de kracht van de natuur; en krachten die hij niet kan begrijpen. Gevoelens van vervreemding, eenzaamheid en nostalgie worden discreet gebruikt om de kortstondige aanwezigheid van het menselijk leven te onderstrepen. '


-------------------------------------------------------

Jan s'est lancé dans la photographie à l'âge de 18 ans. Son objectif principal était le paysage terrestre et marin, puis il a développé un intérêt pour la photo-portrait et le photojournalisme documentaire, qui sont aujourd'hui ses principaux thèmes.


«Le thème central de mon travail est le contraste de l'être humain submergé par le pouvoir de la nature; et des forces qu'il ne peut pas comprendre. Les sentiments d'aliénation, de solitude et de nostalgie sont discrètement utilisés pour souligner la présence éphémère de la vie humaine. »
