About Hans Jeths

The still image of a photo makes time tangible 

In every still image of a photo, the tangibility of time is revealed. We are given a glimpse into the depths of memories and the richness of imagination.

My journey in photography goes beyond just the lens. I am not only a photographer but also an actor, model, storyteller, poet, and curator. Each role allows me to deeply explore the intricate details of characters and their stories. In this, I see humans, animals, trees, and buildings all as living protagonists, imbued with their own tales, histories, and potential futures.

My photographic images often pair with words, be it a phrase, text snippet, poem, or title. This is done to emphasize, reshape, or deepen the narrative. In this way, I invite the viewer to lose themselves within the story.

My work is characterized by a blend of the absurd, philosophical thought, and humor. I tread on the boundary between fantasy, dream, and reality. By introducing a hint of mystery around ineffable concepts, I stimulate the viewer's reflection and challenge them to observe anew and question what they see.

Hans Jeths, narrative photography

Hans Jeths balances in his work at the intersection of theater, visual arts, photography, performance, and poetry. As a photographer, he specializes in portraits, self-portraits, and the integration of historical portraits from old archives. His street and nature photography are also emblematic of his oeuvre. Jeths' unique vision goes beyond just photography; he intertwines various mediums and explores the intersections between diverse forms of art. By weaving elements of performance, storytelling, and poetry, he gives his images a narrative depth. Using archive images, he evokes feelings of nostalgia and timelessness, offering a poetic reflection on the human experience.
