Jeremy Stigter


Jeremy Stigter is a Dutch photographer (The Hague 1958) who lives and works in Paris. After taking degrees in history – London School of Economics and Political Science – and political science – College of Europe (Bruges) – he moved to Paris (1983), and then to New York, where, amongst other things, he studied theatre (1985). Jeremy Stigter took up photography during an extended stay in Japan (1986) where an encounter with the well-known Dutch photographer Ed van der Elsken proved decisive.
