Rock #2

My guest this week is Antwerp-based photographer Jan Kempenaers. Jan broke out on the photography scene in 2010 when he published a book called Spomenik. The book documents the giant geometric sculptures that were built across the countryside of the former Yugoslavia in the 60s and 70 as monuments to various sites and battles from World War Two. Jan traveled to these isolated sites to photograph these alien-looking sculptures. Before Jan’s project these monuments were largely unknown except to the people in the small towns where they’re located.

Jan’s latest book is called Picturesque and it features photographs of landscapes, ruins ,and architecture. He’s interested in the ways that contemporary landscapes relate to classical ideas of picturesque beauty. This week on the show I speak with Jan about photography and his interest in landscape and architecture.
