Profile is a highly personal selection of Jan's work from the early '90's to 2018. Jan's defining images cross all kinds of fashion barriers. His respect for the models he works with is evident. His models are raw, sometimes slighty unconventional beauties, quite often with very little hair and make-up. Jan's images are pure, powerful and evocative, getting to the very soul of the subject.
