Number 177 I took because I was inspired by the very special color blue.
Number 178 was taken at the occasion of a new jacket.
Number 179 needs a somewhat longer story. Every year in summer I am
working for the Dutch foundation “Buitenkunst” (meaning Outside Art). On a
special camping site all kinds of art workshops are given. Painting, singing
(pop and classical), theatre, dance an yes photography. I am giving photography.
I am sleeping a small van. When I want to read a book I use a special reading
lamp, which is attached at my forehead. I am using this lamp as an attribute for a
special effect in a self portrait. I was a mine worker in 2010, a space man in
2011, this year I moved my head after the flash so a strange trace of light
occurs above my head.
Number 180 I took because I liked the small yellow flower.
Together with my friend
and colleague Dutch J. den Hollander I went to visit our friend Martin Harlaar
in Antwerp (Belgium). Martin is a very eloquent guide to explore a city. At a rainy
afternoon we run into a shopping mall. It was Sunday, so all the shops were
closed. Still there were people walking and talking. There was a somewhat lost atmosphere,
a sense of a forlorn surrealism.
