Whims of nature
The origination of my photos are long wanderings through woods and fields in The Netherlands and abroad. On travels through Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Cambodia, Nepal among other countries, I see growths that stand out.
England takes a particular place. Once a year I enjoy the numerous public footpaths. These are an exquisite area to encounter trees that got time and space to full-grow. The trees are alternated by left mines, dismantled railways and other remains of industrial activities, often overgrown with a dense foliage.
My camera serves to research my artist’s themes: I make pictures of objects that intuitively catch my attention. Doing so, I collected an enormous number of trees, people and natural phenomena. On my website you find a selection.
