The artist Jan Paul Evers (born 1982) currently lives and works in Rhineland, Germany. The starting point of his analogue black and white photographs are pictures taken by himself in addition to existing material. The unique pieces on baryta paper focus on the relationship between image and effigy, motif and reality and thus question the scope of reproduction. His works have found their way into numerous collections, such as the Julia Stoschek Collection and the Museum Folkwang Essen. His artistic work can currently be seen in the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf and the Frac Normandie Rouen. He is represented by Gallery Max Mayer, Düsseldorf and Beat Raeber Gallery, Zurich.
