Working on Aether

Working on Aether


Posted By on Thursday, 28 April, 2016

My new project is called Aether, a new photoseries that explores the concept of science fiction photography. I was recently interview by The Crazy Mind about this new project. You can find the interview here. Depicting imagined celestial phenomena, stellar clouds, the event horizon of a black hole and the surface of distant planets, these images conjure up a melancholy yearning for the impossible. The series consists of 25 images,...

Exhibition Two months have passed since my last blogpost and the exhibition in Times Square. Thank you again for helping me choose which pictures should go up! I’m happy to say that things haven’t slowed down in the meantime. In fact, a lot has happened since then. Let me catch you up. My photography work has been shown in New York now a couple of times, most notably last year at the Orensanz Gallery and this summer at...

Patience Last year I traded in my 100mm 2.0 lens for a 100mm 2.8 macro lens, because I wanted the ability to get very close to my subject while filming. I hadn’t really thought much of using the lens for macro photography. I always thought of macro photography as a niche occupied by very patient, very calm nature-loving photographers, who were willing to sit very still and wait for that perfect moment that a bee would alight on...

Portrait and Clouds

Portrait and Clouds


Posted By on Monday, 23 June, 2014

I added two new photos today, a portrait and an iPhoto. The portrait is a photo of a woman. I’ve deliberately kept it a very dark, dreamy image, because I really like how it disguises her, but not her beauty. The highlights on her cheekbones and her nose give her a very youthful look. Her hair, barely visible in the image, is playfully arranged around her face. Her smile, vague, but joyful. I’ve hidden her eyes because I...

Spring in London

Melancholy Trees in Greenwich Park Wandering around Greenwich Park, London Clouds drift on by like dreams… London flowers soaking up spring rays A couple of months ago I was in London. While there I took a stroll through Greenwich Park. It was a very nice day, the sun was out and the clouds drifted by lazily. I had my camera with me and I tried to capture the mood I was in, walking there by myself. It was a combination of...

click to enlarge Flowers The picture of the flowers above, I took back in April, when I was over in London for a visit. I saw them basking in the sun and couldn’t resist. I normally don’t go for pictures of flowers, but in this instance, I thought I’d make an exception. I like the colors. New projects Today is the first of June, summer’s here, time to make some summer plans. I’ve been taking stock of my...

Tweaking reality

Tweaking reality


Posted By on Saturday, 24 May, 2014

click to enlarge I took this photo a while ago, while flying over the North Sea. The sky was bright blue that day and the clouds were fluffy and white. As you can see, none of that early spring vibe has survived in the photo above. I like this image better than the original. I think of it as “tweaking reality”. Other worlds As a kid I was always fascinated by sci- fi and space exploration. I wanted so much to become an...
