After a lot of portrait and still life projects for different magazines and advertising clients, Jan Friese decided to work on a transportation project for Intersection Magazin. The aspiration in his pictures is to find a new definition for transportation photography. Jan is showing the emotion, which a car gives you in a picturesque way and very often he combines them with moody portraits.

"For Intersection Magazine Jan Friese is one of the most important photographers..."
