Mr Armando Jongejan

Armando Jongejan FRPS (1960, Egmond aan Zee - The Netherlands). 
He studied Photography at the University of Applied Photography in Apeldoorn and works as a freelance photographer. He also wants to make ‘free work’ for his own interest like landscape and documentary/ contemporary photography. The way of making photographs of these subjects is completely different and therefore it is very interesting to him.

Armando is a member of the BeNeLux chapter and the Contemporary Group. He gave for example lectures in the The Hague Museum of Photography (NL), Museum of Photography Antwerp (B) and during a tour in Autumn 2014 in Scotland and is on regular base a judge for international Salons.

When Armando is making photographs as a documentary/contemporary photographer he makes contact with people. He likes to make photographs of them in their own environment: their habitat. He is curious how they live, what they do. It inspires him. Another approach is to create a coherent body of work rather than a single Photo.

Since 1989 Armando Jongejan have had several exhibitions in galleries and (photo)museums in the Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Spain and in China. Photos are published in magazines and books.

Since 1996 Armando has published five photographic books: ‘Egmondse dorpsportretten’ (Villagers of Egmond), ‘Van binnenuit’ (From the inside), ‘Licht uit, deur op slot’ (Switch off the light, close the door),  ‘Een zoektocht’ (A quest) and 'Thuiskomen' (Coming home).

A number of printing on demand books is published too.
