  1. Janne van Gilst
    1991, Colijnsplaat

    I work as a photographer, organizer and researcher on self initiated projects and assignments.

    In my work, I focus on our environment and how we shape and relate to it. The visible or invisible histories of the landscapes that surround us have a lot of influence on our lives. I aim to show how these histories manifest themselves. I frequently use archival material, oral histories and found objects in combination with my photography. 

    I am based in The Hague, The Netherlands.

    My work is for sale on Patty Morgan
