Rotterdam grain piston

Art code: 102 618 Copy the art code

Frans Blok Profile picture Grain Pistons were used in the port of Rotterdam mainly in the first half of the twentieth century to bring grain directly from seagoing vessels into inland barges. Nowadays they are rarely used because their role is taken over by cranes. One grain piston can still be seen at the Harbour Museum in Leuvehaven.

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.
