Jan Stel is a Dutch artist born and based in Purmerend. He works with drawing, illustration, and photography. In his ongoing series titled Industrial Landscapes, Stel captures the high contrast between nature and industry in amazing black and white shots.
“The ‘Industrial Landscapes’ is a continuous photo series about the aesthetics between nature and industry. There is a contrasting beauty of our natural Earth and the abstract appearance of the noisy industry. We humans often pass these fascinating tranquil landscapes unnoticed. With patience and silence, these spectacular scenes will unfold their true raw beauty.” – Jan Stel.
