There's something strange about spots in the night. Everything that looks normal in daylight often becomes frightening, mysterious or magical in the dark.
Essentially the night is just a big black box in which all kinds of things exist. Things which are natural as well as things which are made by mankind . Sometimes these things become visible, mostly by artificial light. A feeling of disorientation arises. One knows there's something out there, but it stays invisible. What's waiting in the dark? In my pictures this atmosphere is captured. There's also a distance from everyday life, calmness and concentration; moods which are often to be felt at night.
From april 2013 till march 2014 I am going to exhibit a selection of Night Photographs in the exhibition spaces of the Amsterdam Hogeschool. A hogeschool is a kind of university.
Fervent followers of my blog may have seen these photos in the series Night & Silence.
