Janne van Gilst

Growing up on the island of Noord-Beveland in the Netherlands, Janne van Gilst developed an awareness of the landscapes she was surrounded with.
The many stories and myths passed on from generation to generation within her family, provided these surroundings with an inseparable expressiveness.
Van Gilst captures these island traditions in her series ‘Geestgrond’. The sober landscapes within these images contain a certain emptiness, through which a decor is created wherein the public can discover their own stories.
