A woman is disturbed in her daily work by a passing pedestrian. Her pet
chicken is looking straight into the frame, where time seems to stand still
for a moment.

Dutch photographer Jan Janssen is best known for being an people-photographer.
He was born and raised in the south of the Netherlands.
While using only the natural availible 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 successfull photobook "The Himalaya, my home".
The book was awarded several times with international awards.

He is currently working on a series on poverty in Europe.



I feel honored to participate in the Prix De La Photographie Paris.


Best regards, Jan Janssen, Netherlands
