Taken from a conversation between Jan VH and Nina Holland (Steidl Publishers)
‘It will happen here’ is a body of work that has a special place in my photography. It is unique from all the other works in a sense that these landscape images are the most realistic and most visual inspiration of my work. They are the stages for my games… and somehow they feel to me like the images that I always have in the back of my mind when working on my projects and thinking of new work. It is where I see the connection between turning the world upside down and then putting it back into the right reality. Sometimes I feel that I would like to print those landscapes in oversize, big as walls, and place the rest of my work inside them.. and set up plays and scenarios ..
The landscapes are findings and searchings of/for thoughts.. the other works are constructions of thoughts!
