Hanna Jansen (b. 1992) is a Dutch fine art photographer. In her staged photographic series, she investigates the human condition within our modern-day, Western society. Her work reflects on a variety of universal human experiences such as growing up and the forming of relationships.
The work is surprising in its visual form and tends to reference well-known concepts in imagery. Her work portrays ‘real’ people, within artificial, highly stylised surroundings that remind us of the advertising photography we’ve all grown accustomed to. She aims for her work to be suggestive rather than dictating the context of the work to the viewer. This way the viewer is partially left to his/her own associations, which contributes to the personal nature of the work.
