Jan Vincent Kleine is a talented photographer and traveler, who was born in 1985 in Hamburg, Germany. Jan studied engineering and economics at the universities of Hamburg and Gottingen. He shoots a lot of adventure, outdoor and climbing photography.
My fascination with the outdoors was triggered when back in 2005 I layed eyes on a magazine featuring double-page spread photos of beautiful, captivating landscapes acting as a playground to all sorts of people from hikers to climbers. It was one of those all too rare moments when a single photograph is enough to push you. To move you. To make you do things. Since I first saw those photos, I knew I had to see those places with my own eyes. I went, I took a camera with me and I was amazed. This was the beginning of my passion for the great outdoors and for capturing it’s fascination and essence in strong imagery.
