Jan van Breda (1958) is a portrait, documentary and autonomous photographer. Van Breda lives and works in Amsterdam. After a career for years as a picture editor at newspapers Het Parool and Trouw, he decided in 2004 to follow a course at the Dutch Photo Academy.
During his photography internship he shot the second prize-winning image at the Zilveren Camera Awards: a documentary image shot during Amsterdam Gay Pride. Two years later, he won first prize in the 'portraits' category, also at the Zilveren Camera Awards, with his photo of an abused Jewish boy.
Van Breda has exhibited in the Amsterdam Hermitage with his photo shoot 'MOVED', a series of the last residents of a care home. In 2014 he exhibited in Fotogalerie De Gang in Haarlem with 'LAK!' a series of portraits of drag queens. In 2015 a large retrospective of his photography was shown in the Amstelveen Jan van der Togt museum.
