“About 40 years ago I bought my first camera. Photography started as a hobby, but it has grown into a passionate life style. From start I felt the need to photograph people. Of course in black and white, because I love that the most.
In that time I collected books of the great photographers. Many hours I have spent looking at all that beautiful photos, it gave me so much inspiration.
Through the years I have developed myself and the connoisseurs say I developed my own style of photography” I look with my eyes, I see with my soul.
