Step into the life of Jann Maätita aka Senn and you imediately look at the world differently. Currently living in Amstelveen (after more than a decade in Amsterdam) and focusing on human resources and project management during the day, his camera takes over in his free time. The 'mobile sniper' lives up to the hype. Finding creative aspects and perspectives mixed with distinctive icononography elevate his work into new refreshing realms in this day of content overload. Music is also a major part of Jann's life. "Music is my first and still my greatest passion besides my family and photography. I grew up with the music my uncles, aunts and friends used to play. It started with soul and than respectively country, rock, latin, funk, fusion and nowadays it's a melting pot of different styles. Playing this kinda music at the end of the seventies early eighties in a well known band in my community was the next step. My roots lies in the Moluccan isles in Indonesia. The one thing most people say about me nowadays is 'oh yeah, you're the guy with his inseparable headphones'. He calls his selection 'Funky, Urban, Flava' and is best served commuting with public transport to and from his work to charge his energy, getting Jann in the right flow to start the day and evening.
