Back Light Light and shadow

The only essential thing in photography is light. And where there is light, there is also shadow.

So let's go!

04-Mind The Gap Oriental Conceptual Photography

The idea behind the image is just as important as the visual result. It's about communicating a story or a message through images, which I consciously stage here.

03-Abandoned-Place Abandoned Places – Abandoned places given new life

The revival of abandoned places. A visual leap in time.

What is so fascinating about abandoned places?

Abandoned places, once commercial buildings or factories, they offered jobs, they were part of a current life. Now, many years later, they are no longer needed. The buildings are falling into disrepair. Machines have not survived the time, they rust, rot and are no longer usable.

Can they be revived? Without losing their meaning? We know renovations and conversions. That's possible, it's a good option. But do they retain their spirit? Not always.

We can no longer see what was once done with the machines, the dangers of using them back then, the work of the men, their strength and energy, their sweat, the poor wages and much more, at most we can only imagine. It was definitely a tough time.

Is there another revival?

Urbex is the keyword!
A short form of Urban Exploration.

Abandoned places are ideal for photographs and videos. They are very suitable for telling a new story in pictures.

It becomes particularly interesting when I can take portrait photos in these old factories.
The contrast between old machines and young men is very large in the illustrations.
However, an even greater increase occurs with nude photographs.

Polaroid pictures, especially the SX-70 Pola's, were a very respected and sought-after medium in the 1980's, especially in artistic circles. Of course I experimented with it too. In front of the camera, behind it, during the development process and also when exposing the raw material. However, following the “instructions for use” of the camera and film wasn’t always my thing.
