I work in the genres landscapes, architecture, and people. Primarily, I am involved with projects of long duration, but I also do jobs of a shorter nature.
My work alternates between art projects of my own and various commissions, including ornamentation and collaboration with authors.
Janne Klerk was born in 1953 and has worked as a photographer since 1977. She has a virtuoso eye, and cuts to the bone in her representation of reality. A reality which she allows to speak directly through her, and pragmatically and unsentimentally passes on.
Regardless of the motive, Janne Klerk’s photographs are characterized by a crystalline purity, seen with love and depth. She is a truth-seeking photographer and a picture-seeking poet.
