Jan Van Der Woning
Jan van der Woning became a professional at the age 25 when he got his grade for photography from the Dutch “Fotovakschool”. Most of his work was commercial but in 1999 he started to make 396 degrees panoramic images and his work shifted to editorial, art and interactive photography for websites.
His work is bougth as artwork in medium and large sizes and sold in galleries and museums and at artmarkets. Exhibitions were in The Panorama Mesdag Museum in the Hague Netherlands, Artkite Museum in Detmold Germany, Photokina Cologne Germany, Macworld San Fransisco USA and others.He travelled through many countries in Europe, North, West and Central Africa and the United States including Alaska. He also visited Middle and South America and Borneo, where he made panoramas of illegal logging; Indonesia for WWF and Greenpeace.
As part of an art project he made an expedition to the Antarctic. Jan likes to shoot city- and landscapes and people. He thinks the nicest moment of the day is the twilight zone and a lot of his pictures are taken in this short but beautiful period. On the Antarctic the sun sets lasted for hours so this was a real “Eldorado”.
