Janne van Gilst
1991, Colijnsplaat
Within my work as a photographer, I focus on stories that are imbedded in the landscape. 
While growing up on the island of Noord-Beveland in Zeeland, I developed an awareness of the landscapes I was surrounded by. I have been photographing my changing environment since studying Documentary Photography at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. 

Based in The Hague, The Netherlands.
