ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jan Peter Vos
Jan Peter Vos is introduced by his father into the worlds of art, nature and photography. At an early stage he grasped its fascination and became part of it. He developed a sense to think and see things differently to find out, that most of the world around him just does the opposite.
His life took a major turn in 1965. He departed to Latin America, where he found his lost “home” in Guatemala. The colorful lifestyle of its people, their emotions and the very special touch of nature in that part of the world got anchored for good in his soul.
In 1969, after the birth of his first 2 kids, he decided to return to Europe to learn more about industrial thinking. During the 70´s he has been working for a large international company and became an active part of the video and computer revolution. As such he has been actively involved in the birth of the first consumer video cameras and played as from the early 80´s a prominent role in developing and marketing the early generation of personal computers.
Fascinated by innovation and the development of human thinking, he entered the software industry with a small group of equally minded people to develop and market revolutionary software solutions.
Whatever he did or wherever he was, photography, his father’s heritage, was his permanent companion.
His great love is the beauty of the overlooked: tiny details, that one would find hard to discover.
It is this special love, that inspires him to think and act differently. “Sometimes it is only a tiny thing, that can cause major effects”
To see these things and their impact, that is his art. Enjoy this fascinating world and get stunned by nature´s creativity.
