Jan Stel ‘Manmade / no human’
From 24 September until 5 November Eduard Planting Gallery in Amsterdam presents an exhibition of Dutch art photographer Jan Stel. Following the launch of his first book ‘Manmade / no human’. The exhibition shows the fascination of the photographer for abandoned buildings with distinctive architecture.

In almost twenty years, Jan Stel has captured lots of intriguing locations with his analogue and digital cameras, only using natural light conditions. These locations, that once roared with life and activity, are now silent and without any human presence.

Conceived, designed and built by people, but now deserted by everyone. Over the years, Jan Stel photographed at home and abroad locations like an old gas tank, steel plant, cooling tower, power station, wine cathedral and historic mansions.

Self-taught photographer Jan Stel (1970) was a pioneering artist in his youth. ‘Manmade / no human’ is his second solo exhibition at Eduard Planting Gallery. His photos received international acclaim and have been showcased at art fairs such as the KunstRAI, PAN Amsterdam, REALISME and Rotterdam Contemporary Art Fair.
