Photographer #208: Jörn Vanhöfen

Jörn Vanhöfen, 1961, Germany, is a landscape photographer. He will be releasing his book Aftermath with images from his Disaster series in April 2011. In 2009 he released the book Südafrikas Küste (South Africa's Coast). His large prints have something that makes the viewer uncomfortable and question reality. Jörn plays with the elements such as wind, snow, light and carefully chooses perspectives gaining tension in the photographs. Jörn has exhibited extensively throughout Europe, but also had several overseas exhibitions. He has been published in various catalogues. In 2000 he released the book Die Elbe (The Elbe River). The following images come from the series Disaster, Südafrika and Elbe.
