JAN ERIK WAIDER
Jan Erik Waider is a visual artist and fine art photographer based in Hamburg. His focus is atmospheric and abstract landscape photography of the distant North: Norway, Iceland, Greenland and beyond. Jan’s desire to explore remote and rarely seen places provides unique opportunities to shoot magnificent vistas and landscapes. His meticulous and well-planned approach to his fine art photography immerses him in his surroundings. He was always drawn to the North. Exploring the cold, raw beauty of its landscapes became a form of meditation for him, and photography a way to preserve those fleeting memories. These quiet mesmerizing moments of contemplation and reflection are what inspire Jan the most. These are the moments where he feels connected and “at home.” His photography is a way of preserving these fleeting memories. Jan’s work should be seen as a visual journal. His photography gives us insight into his mind and imagination.
