Jan Vermeer is a professional photographer from the Netherlands. He visited over fifty countries including Antarctica, Iceland, Congo, Namibia, and the special atoll Aldabra in the Indian Ocean. His photographs have been awarded in prestigious photo contests such as the BBC Wildlife of the Year Contest. His latest project about Mushrooms is published world-wide in magazines like National Geographic, BBC Wildlife magazine, Focus and many more. The most important thing for Jan is to show how beautiful the natural world is in his purist form. Or, as he puts it together: “I want to evoke awe and reverence”. Only by doing so, there will be a future for our children.
