Jan S. Hansen


GUESS is an artists’ book by Jan S. Hansen that gathers a collection of black and white photographs taken on his travels, in his close environment or places in between. The photographs are the artist’s observations of a wide range of motives: landscapes, animals, abandoned hotel rooms, windows and lost shoes. A large part of the photographs depict environments void of people or life, producing a sense of being out of time and place. At first glance the images seem diverse and scattered, but an underlying feeling joins them together, creating an undefined impression of observing the world, both in front of and behind the immediate and visible.


Jan S. Hansen was born in 1980, Denmark, and has traveled widely for the past 15 years. His practice is based on autobiographical and sociological reflections, spanning a broad range of media such as painting, installation, ceramics and photography.
