Some people wonder if I am still working on my series about Diemen, my home town. Well, I can reassure them, I am still working on it.
Gradually the way I am depicting this suburb is changing. I used to make some kind of topographic images. Nowadays I tend to make photographs which I call controlled snapshots. They are like postcards, but with subjects which are unusual for postcards.
A funny thing about working a long time (6 years now) on Sites from Diemen is that not only my photographic vision changes, but also the town itself. I captured spots which changed radically, or even disappeared.
