“Un piccolo souvenir dalla Sardegna” # 5



“Un piccolo souvenir dalla Sardegna” contains photographs I took during a holiday Petra and I made at the beginning of May this year on the island of Sardinia. I want to create a kind of transition from faction into fiction. Photography (mine anyway) is always based on capturing facts. But sometimes as a photographer you frame things in the context of space and time in such a way that the subject is more or less getting a life of its own, like fiction. Anyway, have a look. Nevertheless it was a brilliant journey on a wonderful island. Photograph: 19/5/4 Castel Sardo 4.12 pm.

1 of the things I did during this year (& during the last 2 months of 2017) was taking a photo between the two slopes of the freeways A1 and A9, a piece of ground between a motorway junction where only grass is growing. And some wild flowers. Every 2-3 weeks I went to 52.332323 ° North latitude,  5.004553 ° East longitude and stood on the same corner stone. At YouTube https://youtu.be/o3nNk9jIKFE you can watch a test series. In January I am planning to make a “Bijsterboekje” (Bijsterbooklet). Photographs: 52.332323 ° North latitude, 5.004553 ° East longitude, 4/18, 5.37 pm and 52.332323 ° North latitude 5.004553 °, East longitude, 7/27, 11.59 am.

Sometimes a photograph has a small secret. By watching some time longer, the secret often seems to be solved. Although? After having landed in San Francisco during the afternoon, coming from Amsterdam, I took this picture during the afternoon. Some jetlag…. Photograph: 8/28, 9.37 pm.

Diemen is the Amsterdam suburb where our family lives for quite a few years now. In Diemen one can find the only one level railway crossing in the Amsterdam region. Source of irritation with about twenty trains every hour. But sometimes in the long afternoon light of December a railway crossing is just beautiful. And the photographer is doing some errands and has as always, a camera with him. Photograph: Diemen (NL), 12/13, 3.11 pm. A.D. 2018 is a selection from photographs I made during 2018
