About me

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.
Elliott Erwitt

Nothing so easy as hiding behind a nice quote, but it really sums up what it all is about. For me, photography is looking at the world in a different way. Even though you passed by some place thousands of times, there is always something you have never noticed before. Getting the extraordinary out of everyday life, the seemingly mundane

The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words.
Elliott Erwitt

Creating a nice picture is one thing, trying to explain myself in a visual way is quite something else. To me, it is kinda difficult, because I see myself a bit as an omnivore. Sure, I have my favourites, but there are disciplines that I stay away from (bridal, fashion, product or macro photography to name a few).

I won’t be offended if you would label me ‘street photographer’, but I just don’t see myself that way. Sure, it roughly indicates what I usually do: I walk on the streets in my hometown and or somewhere else with a camera. Street photography is a somewhat loaded term anyway – a nice quote (I can’t remember who said it, Bruce Gilden maybe?): “street photography is 99% just pictures shot on a street”. Well, I shoot a lot of pictures on the street, but that doesn’t necessarily make it street photography, neither does make me a street photographer. But every now and then I have my moments and I might show them here. But don’t be freaked out if there is the occasional landscape shot, or a macro photo.

Leica, schmeica. The camera doesn’t make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But you have to see.

As a rule of thumb, I won’t tell you much about the technicalities of a photo, unless I think it is relevant to do so. Maybe I will tell you about a camera that I use, a book I purchased, or a type of film that I like to shoot with, but for now I’ll stick with the pictures.

Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.
