Jean Paul Witteman


My name is Jean Paul Witteman. I am 54 years of age and have been married to Linda for 24 years now. Together we have a 18 years daughter. As a high sensitive person, photographing is the ultimate method of awareness and to stand still and enjoy 'the moment'. In addition, it is also a way for me to show the world from my point of view. I experience our capitalist society as madness. "When you have more than you need, build a longer table, not a higher fence"! So I am a great fan of the Brazilian Ricardo Semler. The philosophy of this man is more than fantastic. Working with each other on the condition of love, equivalence and respect. I have a strong urge to capture the seamy side of society, which has to do with my spirited (hard) youth. Wanderers, homeless people, pouce & pimps, old people and poverty. However, these target groups are hard to capture. Street photography is a nice method, it often tells the story of 'real life' without filter. There is often also the unpolished and disarming contact. I love it and it is very great to do., Dutch Photomagazine
