Silent beauty, the decay in an abandoned business premises. Mould, moisture and rust create mysterious shapes and patterns. And there is always the question, what happened here in the past and why was the building, with so many attributes left behind, left to fate and the ravages of time.

Time stands still.......A winter's day in pastel shades, a foggy spring's morning, summer's rest in August, the autumn: transience in colour, smell and light! From an early age, I have been fascinated by the seasons. In 2006 I got more time and by attending courses at FRB Photography I gradually became completely fascinated by photography and I have continued to develop myself. The fact that I live in a beautiful rural area of Friesland has certainly contributed to a preference for photographing landscapes, capturing the special moments. Time does not stand still, the light, the sky and the atmosphere are constantly changing! A few years ago I also started photographing still lifes, the time-honoured craft of composing with light and form. Life literally stands still for a moment. An idea arises, the execution and the fine tuning, is mainly about the art of omission.
