Was it his father's camera that documented Jonas' childhood? Or his first own camcorder at 13? What is certain is that DoP Jonas Kolahdoozan has been perceiving the world through the lens ever since he was given an SLR camera in Amsterdam.
Having been raised in between two homes, Iran and Germany, and independently choosing the Netherlands as a third, Jonas knows how to actively shift his perception – fast. This has taught him curiosity, openness and the courage to engage with the unknown.
Hence, standing behind a camera enables him to implement the learned, transforming the seen into emotions and therefore giving life to the immersive soul of film itself.
No matter if it is the right lighting, the unique angle or the appropriate rigging solution, Jonas tries to combine it all, in order to transport the felt sensations to each and every viewer.
