Photography and Graphics
As a kid, my dad learned me how to handle a camera. At eighteen I started taking pictures. In my early twenties, the job took over...
And gradually graphics sneaked in.
Finally, with the start of the digital era, I learned how to handle digital devices, capture images and how to work and treat them. Photography also proved to be a valuable resource for my graphical work.
Basics and differentiation
With information technology as profession, I am mainly interested in the logic and the flow of things. But there is something else that makes it all worthwhile. The Underlying, unrevealed, waiting to be discovered. The little twist, the unexpected, the surprise.
It's not that much about detail. It's more about the framework. The detail comes in to differentiate. It imposes a look and feel of uniqueness. Today, images of mainly digital nature are abundantly available. Most have been treated with technological tools to make them the ideal fit for the job.
In my Photography I very often turn to black and white. I feel like this is the approach that best fits my thoughts of fundamental quality and differentiating detail. Those thrifty times where I do use colour, are the occasional moments where it acts as either. See my Extended Photo Portfolio
My Graphical work shares the same spirit. Except that colour is more prominent. The number of colours used is very limited though. Actually, I use colour in the same way as I do black and white in photography.

The portfolio part of the site gets updated on a regular basis. It is build around a theme with focus on nature and architecture, as well as on industrial processes and events.
It is the intend to show the result of recent projects I am working on. That said, I will be working on architecture in the coming months. So it is worth checking every now and then.
