Welcome to my portfolio

Scroll down to see new images in chronological order or use the menu above to find the themes that appeal to you. At the bottom you can see my latest Instagram posts (you won't need an account). Warning: I'm in my impressionist period now.

I added comments on every image to offer some background. Any observation from your side: more than welcome ☺. Enjoy!

Three activities that have played an important part in my life have come together in this website: photography, web design and my love for English (I'm not trying to be perky here, I chose to translate my website into English as most of my visitors are non-Dutch speaking).

Photography is what makes me tick. I noticed that my work is getting more and more abstract. Inspired by having visited more museums in the past five years than in my entire life? Most certainly. Changed because I am getting older? Definitely.

With techniques such as ICM and blur aided by post-processing I try to make images that are different and grab the attention. If they don't, I am truly sorry. But there's also plenty of tradional photography. Don't worry.

There are many greeneries in the area we live, and what I appreciate is that they always try to make their technical appliances less conspicous by blending it in with the direct surroundings.

Reflections

Sitting on the dock of the bay, yes, it does make your mind wander. This is Kampen's port, full of sailing-boats and old vessels that do leave a trail of oil behind ...

Perspective

Will we be on foreign beaches again for a walk in the evening or a morning stroll, this summer or autumn? I love Sicily. This is a minimalistic image of the Sicilian south coast.
