Jaap de Jonge 

Born 1949 in Breda, The Netherlands. Studied Dutch Language and Literature.

Self taught visual artist / photographer.

Many of Jaap de Jonge's photo works are to be lumped together as "The Back of a Desired Image". At this time photography has to be perfect and polished. But reality is not always so perfect.

The backside of 'beautiful' is not the same as 'ugli'.

In his male photography (Dutch Male Art) Jaap de Jonge will catch the vulnerability and sometimes the loneliness and the child that is hidden into each man.
