Dutch artist Jan Janssen is best known for being an people-photographer.

While using only the natural available light, he always has his eyes on composition and details. His heart is with the elderly in our society and the Buddhist inhabitants of the Himalayas. 


He specialized in documentary photography with a photographic culmination in 2013, when he launched his successful photobook "The Himalaya, my home". The book was awarded several times with international awards. 

A few years later, he became the big winner of the International Photographer of the Year with his series "Proud for One Second". Currently he's working on a long-term photoproject in Eastern Europe.




artist statement

 "As a true sentimentalist, I express my feelings through my images.

I get inspired by authentic cultures and the pure beauty of our Earth.


As an artist, I'm always searching for that one, perfect moment where everything comes together.

Those moments tell my story. 


Through the years I developed my own, strong style. Powerful images which show passion, with space for your own story as a viewer."
