Diemer Plek # 51 (Sites from Diemen NL # 51)




Call it Parking lot Photography. It seems nothing is happening at the scene of the picture. But meanwhile there is a hidden tension. Something is going to happen, but exactly when and where? ……….

Klein en Dagelijks # 1 (Small and Daily # 1)

This may be the start of a new series. Sometimes there is an unexpected beauty in small daily affairs.
Yesterday when I was eating my breakfast egg the thought came up. No idea where it is leading to.

Vanwege Fragmentarische Aard (81) (Because of a Fragmentic Nature (81))

Sitting in the last train home,
waiting for departure,
at the top of a double-decker train,
people and things get a magical appearance.

Zelfportretten # 139 & 140(Self-portraits # 139 & 140)



Making self portraits is acting in front of the camera. A slow dance in the dark between man and his own camera.

Vanwege Fragmentarische Aard (80) (Because of a Fragmentic Nature (80))



Photography is maybe the most surrealistic art. A photographer always gives a certain twist to the “real” world. Framing, lightning and especially timing are essential.

Portret (Portrait)

It is interesting to see in how many ways a photographic portrait can be made.

Vanwege Fragmentarische Aard (79) (Because of a Fragmentic Nature (79))

Stations can be weird places. Especially new & modern stations contain many mysterious reflections. Waiting for a train becomes an exciting visual adventure instead of a boring experience!
A bit surreal.

Zelfportretten # 135-138 (Self-portraits # 135-138)







Some thoughts.

-The search for one’s identity can (not) be the reason for making self-portraits.
-In many self-portraits the photographer is some kind of an ego actor.
-The easy thing of shooting self-portraits is the fact that the model is always available.
-The difficult thing of shooting self-portraits is the fact that the ego is sometimes blocking the result.
-Vanity is an idle motive for making a self-portrait.
-A self-portrait is (not) an Alter Ego.
-The self-portrait is (not) the image of a photographer.

And so on.

Zomaar *10 (Just Like That *10)

Hotel rooms often have a very peculiar atmosphere. In Milano we stayed at a very special one. It was like sleeping in a movie. A movie about living at the end of the 19th century. Look at the walls.
The only thing that didn’t fit into this picture was the TV. It had only one working channel: CNN International. Which we watched every night, because of the Libyan developments.
