‘Museum aan het Vrijthof’ shows the work of fine-art photographer and urban explorer Jan Stel in a spectacular exposition.
You enter the exposition of Jan Stel with a 2 storeys high image of a giant steelfactory in the North of France. His fascination for long gone glory started around 1998 and since then he visited many unknown sites in the Netherlands and Europe. The whole museum breathes the air of architectural decay so wonderfully captured by Jan in 75 images that occupy the entire museum.
Jan Stel’s photography is made in pure, natural light; no flashlights or studio lamps are used. This authentic working process takes time, patience, sensitivity and excellent timing. His photography received a lot of interest from (inter-)national media and was published in the The Daily Mail, De Volkskrant, NRC Handelsblad, De Telegraaf, in dozens of magazines and on many websites and blogs. It also obtained several awards, like the Sony World Photography Awards, International Color Awards and the Epson Pano Awards. His work is part of many private and corporate collections.
You are invited to join us at the opening of the exposition on Saturday June 22nd at 4 p.m., Museum aan het Vrijthof | Vrijthof 18 | 6211LD Maastricht. RSVP before June 14 firstname.lastname@example.org
