Vanwege Fragmentarische Aard (136) Because of a Fragmentary Nature (136)


Sometimes I’m sitting in a bus, being very glad that Canon made its s90 camera and that it is in my pocket.

Vanwege Fragmentarische Aard (135) Because of a Fragmentary Nature (135)



Some new photographs about reflections, advertisements. It is great to see how in a 2D picture all those elements from reflected and directly perceived worlds combine into an often strange world, almost surreal. As you all may know, I just love that.

Zomaar *14 (Just Like That *14)


UP: It just happened yesterday: the last rays of the sun were beautifully corresponding with the scene at the TV screen. Some images just take place.

Vanwege Fragmentarische Aard (134) Because of a Fragmentic Nature (134)





Last Sunday I revisited the carnival in Maastricht, in the deep South of Holland. As always I was struck by the somewhat surreal atmosphere. For former pictures of the carnival click at the word Carnaval in the labels underneath this message.

Diemer Plek # 75 (Sites from Diemen NL # 75)




In my photographs of locations in my hometown Diemen something is slowly changing. When I started 7½ years ago, my main purpose was to capture the meaning & the purpose of the pictured spot. After that I gradually used a more topographic vision. Nowadays I’m looking for a mixture between those two approaches. To that combination I tend to add pictorial elements like the use of  and sometimes the emphasis on atmosphere and color. Or of course the lack of color and atmosphere at a certain spot.

Selfies! (Zelfportretten 269, 270, 271_Self-portraits 269, 270, 271)





There’s sometimes a misunderstanding about (my) self portraits. They’re paradoxes. At one hand they’re captures of  who’s really me, at the other and greater hand they’re photographs of a person who is playing a part in some kind of play. Of course I realize that there’s something of me in the photo, but it is not really me.  Every moon has a bright and a dark side.
These ones where made to investigate the effect of a colored eye in a dark monochrome face.

Vanwege Fragmentarische Aard (133) Because of a Fragmentic Nature (133)





Shopping windows. Experiments with putting the content of the shop, reflections of street life and sometimes signs of letters into one photographic frame.  An image that can only exist in my camera at just one particular moment. Photography can capture frame and time. Bit of Surrealism?
