Johan Talens is a photographer from the Netherlands. He studied history and anthropology and makes a living in information technology. A few years ago he discovered photography as a creative outlet. He feels affinity with the improvising nature of street photography. In fact, most of his pictures are shot walking down the streets, around buildings, investigating shop windows, moving in and out of light and shadow. Black and white is an essential characteristic of his photography. He admires André Kertész, Saul Leiter and Lee Friedlander for their particular ways of seeing and capturing the world ‘differently’.
In recent years his work has been published in:
