Jan Brouckaert Photography
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jan got into photography when he was 18. His main focus was land- and seascapes, yet later on he developed an interest in night photography and documentary photojournalism.
The central theme throughout Jan's work is the contrast of a small human being against the overwhelming power of nature; feelings of loneliness and nostalgia are discreetly used to underline the ephemeral presence of human life.
