Janne van Gilst

While growing up on the island of Noord-Beveland in Zeeland, photographer Janne van Gilst
(Colijnsplaat, 1991) developed an awareness of the landscapes she was surrounded by. She has
been photographing her changing environment since studying Documentary Photography at the
Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. She reflects on the cultural zeitgeist and its relationships to
the ways we shape and experience our surroundings. She has previously worked on projects
about local folk tales, agricultural traditions and the human urge to control and restrain the
landscape. Her work is frequently published and exhibited, both nationally and internationally.
