Jan C. Schlegel Art

German, b. 1965

Jan C. Schlegel was born in 1965 in the Black Forest of Germany. He discovered his passion for photography at the age of 14 within the scope of a Photo course at school. For his first own camera, the reflex camera Minolta XG9, the 14-year-old saved long. As the winner of an AGFA photo competition with a focus on portraits, Schlegel took part in a seminar by the photographer Walter Schels in the Staatslehranstalt für Photographie in Munich. Under Walter Schel’s influence Schlegel began to ascertain his fervor for black-and-white portraits. Toni Schneiders, a distant neighbor of Schlegel, became the second important mentor for the young photographer. After a two and a half year-long apprenticeship at Lake Bodensee Schlegel was a professionally trained photographer by the age of 18. Schlegel works for the University of the Nations. He teaches courses in photography and takes students through Africa and Asia, mentoring them as they discover their way of seeing.
