WFW loves Dutch photographer JAAP SCHEEREN because his work is just fresh. Humour is a key element in his work but without relinquishing the underlying seriousness or sincerity of his intentions.

Graduated in 2003 from the Academy St.Joost in Breda, he recently participated in the group show “Dutch Seen: New York Rediscovered” in The Museum of the City of New York ( curated by KATHY RYAN, Photo Editor of The New York Times Magazine) and in two exhibitions on Dutch photography in the Netherlands: “- in reverse _ Foam”,Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam and “Quickscan #1”, Nederlands Fotomuseum.

JAAP SCHEEREN lives and works in Amsterdam. He has published three books, ‘The Black Hole’, 2006, ‘Oma Toos’, 2007 and ‘3 Roses, 9 Ravens, 12 Months’, 2008.
