“Photography is the simplest thing in the world, but it is incredibly complicated to make it really work.”

Making photographs in the dunes in Zeeland

Making photographs is for me a way to watch the world around me. And what I’ve seen can be found on this site. I’m attracted to patterns, structures and chaos in natural and urban environments.

About 40 years ago, I started with making photographs; all analog with black and white films. Printing the films in a small dark room I had. In the attic I was busy in red light with all kinds of chemicals. And it was a kind of magic to see the image appear on a white sheet of paper. Very fascinating and fulfilling to do!

All kind of reasons (becoming a family, my daytime job) made that I could not spend much time on photography. About a decade ago, I decided to start again seriously. The whole field of photography had changed drastically: no more analog film, but all things digital! No more dark room, but Lightroom and Photoshop.

What didn’t change was the challenge to make photography work. And the results can be found on this site.
 
In 2020 I redesigned this site and switched the language to English. The old blog articles in Dutch can be found here.
