Emerging Photography Contender: Jasper van den Ham

The absence of people in otherwise crowded locations plays an important role in Dutch fine art photographer Jasper van den Ham’s work. Primarily concerning himself with the places themselves, he is intrigued by the balance between detail and negative space. 

Jasper writes in his Artist Statement: "I travelled 4 days from Moscow to Irkutsk on the Trans Siberian Express. During this trip I spent most of my time in the confined space of the train coupe. On the first day I noticed all the details in the changing landscape, but as time passed my surroundings got more and more abstract".
