About

Grown up in a world without internet, am inspired by: family and friends; Michel Szulc-Krzyzanowski, especially his documentary photography for ‘the Henny-project’ ; Keith Haring with his powerful colors, lines, composition and energy; newspaper photographers; Ansel Adams with his famous black and white landscapes; Ed van der Elsken with strong black and white portraits and street photography; Jean Dubuffet, especially his Jardin d’Émail), visits tot the Kröller Müller Museum.

As my father was an architect and loved to photograph, I was brought up watching lines and shapes and tones. Not a bad environment to grow up…

Today my learning and inspiration source is, next to photo magazines, friends and family, on the internet.

It would be no surprise that documentary photography, street photography, abstract and graphical pictures and (partly) architectural photography have my interest.

I have learned to take pictures in the non-digital age using different Minolta and Nikon SLRs and liked to print black and white pictures myself. A nice time.  Nowadays I take the advantage of a digital SLR and iPhone. It’s only since 2011 I bought one: an occasion Nikon D80.  It took some time to get used to the digital way of shooting and developing, but now I love it most of the time. The same with my iPhone 4s (replacement of my iPhone 3gs in november 2013). It has great possibilities and I am having a lot of fun with it.

Later on I baught a second hand iPad 2 and rediscovered my pleasure in drawing with it.
