Biography: Gertjan van Geerenstein (GJ) is a people person with an amazing sensitivity for peoples emotion. He is an autodidact and his specialities are people and street photography. He has developed his photographic skills by following his heart. There is a polarity in his work, it shows strong contrasts in black & white that seems to be hard and raw but if you look deeper you"ll see the vulnerability of the people. GJ likes to get close to people and they feel save and relaxed. He is capturing that special move, touch or look, that you can almost feel the emotion in his pictures.
