Exhibitions

Cataphote
Veronique Jansen meets people in her immediate vicinity. Resilient people with touching stories. Cataphote reflects her ‘quest’, in a sense serving as a mirror for her actions as an image-maker, in search for the balance between her subject and herself as the creator and a human being. Cataphote is her report.

These portraits were made in collaboration with students from Het Comenius College in Hilversum. The project was part of the educational program for young people. Announcement.
