The Neon Demon

After watching the movie The Neon Demon, which I don’t recommend if you want to have a cosy evening, fellow photographer Marieta Landkroon and I were inspired and decided to do a shoot based on this Neon Demon. Especially since I like shooting work with a movie in mind and several themes of The Neon … Continue reading “The Neon Demon”

Destroying consumer society

The actual demise of consumer society might be far from now, but I wanted to make a small series of photographs on that concept. It has turned out quite literal. Reflecting on the photographs as a whole (just now) I think it might be better to focus on what you want rather than on what … Continue reading “Destroying consumer society”

The people at Saal Digital Nederland let me print a favourite photograph on dibond in … Continue reading “Saal Digital Nederland”

Some freehand images from the forest

For Easter my wife and I went to the Veluwe, a beautiful area with forests in the Netherlands. We went shopping on saturday and visited the well known Kröller Möller museum on sunday.

The principal wants to remain anonymous (NO NAME) but agreed to publishing the photographs on this blog. As a whole the series of photos paints a specific portrait of the principal which is not necessarily “true” but … Continue reading “Principal of an elementary school”

Nightlife / when everybody sleeps

Some weeks ago I shot a small series of landscape photographs themed “Nightlife / when everybody sleeps”, while it was cold in the Netherlands, water was frozen. To emphasize the emptiness I shot the landscape series day for night, without any light sources and people in the frame. Day for night means you shoot during … Continue reading “Nightlife / when everybody sleeps”
