The port of Rotterdam, still the largest of Europe, extends over a length of forty kilometers. On this map we see all the city's harbours, from the old docks near the city center, top left, through the Petroleum Ports, the Botlek and Europoort, up to the first and second Maasvlakte, reclaimed from the North Sea. They're all located next to the river, which is first called Lek , then Nieuwe Maas, then Scheur and finally Nieuwe Waterweg.
We also see countless lakes, canals and other waters in the Rijnmond area.
This map is made in digital brown paper on virtual stainless steel; there are also other versions.

My work can be located in the border regions of photography, painting and computer visuals. With my company 3Develop I do work in commission but I use the same techniques, skills and software to make free work. I am originally an architect and I live in Rotterdam; for that reason the architecture of that city is a major (but not the only) source of inspiration. But also travel to countries like Iceland and Britain, or walks in the Netherlands, provide much material. Seeing and showing quality and beauty, that is what my work is about.
