Jan Stel (Purmerend, the Netherlands) is a self-taught Fine Art Photographer and Photoshop artist. Always a creative person, Jan was a pioneering artist in his youth, spraying Graffiti murals in the suburbs of Amsterdam and at home painting detailed drawings and realistic illustrations.
As a photographer he explores abandoned places of our times, a forgotten world where mankind has disappeared. The mixture of fascinating history, absence of mankind and curiosity about our beautiful world of decay is the essence of my photography. All of Stel his photography is made in pure natural light; no flashlights or studio lamps are used.
