I am an autodidactic fine art photographer from the Netherlands, with extensive experience in analog photography, developing and printing in my own darkroom, as well as working with digital cameras. In the past few years, after quitting my demanding job in facilities management and real estate, I have been focusing on simplicity and the tranquility of pure, natural living. This new way of living is reflected in my work.
Daily life in the western world is overflowing with stimuli that continuously force our senses to the limit of their abilities. In my photography I’m seeking the attention for a single detail, seeking for the soul itself of nature.
Born in 1959 in the city of Gouda, I now live with my wife and dog partly in Nijmegen and partly in a small farmhouse in the Danish Thy region in North West Jutland. In the special light and colors on this part of the coast of Denmark, most of the inspiration for my photography is born.
