ABOUT HANS

Award winning Dutch photographer and publisher Hans Kemp has been photographing all corners of Asia for over three decades. His iconic photography has appeared in countless magazines and coffee-table books and continues to enthrall a worldwide audience

Hans first arrived in Asia in 1986 at the start of what turned out to be an 18-month sojourn before finally taking the Trans Siberian train from Beijing to Moscow and then onwards to the Netherlands. The nomadic bug had firmly entrenched itself however and Hans soon found himself back in Asia guiding tour groups across the Karakoram Highway from Northern Pakistan into China’s Xinjiang province and onwards into Tibet.

Establishing a base in Hong Kong in the early 1990’s allowed Hans to develop his photography skills, traversing and capturing Asia in iconic images published in a wide variety of international magazines and books. He pioneered the creation of quality postcards in Vietnam and founded the illustrated book publisher Visionary World in Hong Kong.

Hans’ coffee-table books depict Asia in all its shades, textures and color. The iconic Bikes of Burden, an homage to the incredible load carrying motorbikes of Vietnam is an international bestseller.

More than 30 years after his initial foray into Asia Hans’ fascination with the vicissitudes of this vibrant continent has not diminished. Never short on ideas, from his current base Bangkok, Hans passionately continues to aim his camera at little known corners of this enervating and energizing part of the world for his next photography book or assignment.
