Jan’s photographic interests are in many diverse forms and styles of photography. Photographers that touch his heart are always ones that make timeless portrait images, like Irving Penn, David Bailey, Paolo Roversi, and Richard Avedon.

“While others wander and rarely get the end of the path, I let deviations push me further along to ever-advancing points towards the ultimate destination: making timeless sincere and intimate portraits that freeze emotions in one still frame. The challenge is not to take a photograph, but to remove complex extraneous layers in the relationship between model and photographer. To me, beautiful is based on a woman’s interesting character, one everyone would want to know rather than classic beauty,” said Jan.

His style notes a calm regard into the person he photographs, daring to have no distraction or complication, nothing in way of technical obscurity, only showing an essential sincerity.

Jan says, “the best photographs are made when all anticipations are stripped away making that chance of fleeting volatile moments of transcending purity. Surprisingly, defying conventional expectations of what beautiful women are to other photographers, I want something ultimately more precious, the gift of a moment of intense intimacy as fragile and pure as it may be.”
