I am offering a brand new one-on-one in-person workshop called Voorbij de Blokkade (in English Beyond the Block). This is meant for photographers who are feeling a bit stuck or insecure about their work. Read more about this unique opportunity here.
The Blue Note Gallery is featuring two exhibitions In the FYV exhibition my image, Silent Jonquils, hangs among the works of about 60 abstract expressionist photographers. You can enter this virtual exhibition by clicking on this link. The AR&BN exhibition, Silence is a true friend who never betrays, features my image Secret. You can visit it by clicking on this link.
I grew up in the 50’s on the north-eastern coast of the United States. I was given my first camera when I was 18, following in my mother’s and grandfather’s footsteps. But life got in the way, as it sometimes does, so it wasn’t until after my retirement in The Netherlands that I started taking my photography seriously.
When I published my autobiography in 2015, I had no idea that, not even a year later, my life would be totally inundated by the desire to be a photographer… an expressive photographer. My love of photography had always been there. But suddenly the barriers broke, and the creative life I’d always denied myself came surging in. Recently I’ve started making more and more images that express my moods and emotional responses to the landscape. Photographing what lies beyond the simple truth of what I see.
My work has been published in On Landscape (UK), The Luminous Landscape (CA), and Natuurfotografie (NL).
I’ve always loved to write and, besides these articles and my book, I keep a blog (somewhat erratically) on various topics which you can find here under Essays.
As a photographer I’m committed to treat nature with respect. I’m therefore an ambassador for Nature First, an alliance for responsible nature photography.
