The Hef, Rotterdam

Art code: 104 259 Copy the art code

Frans Blok Profile picture The Hef is an iconic railway bridge over the Koningshaven in Rotterdam, known from, among other things, the movie The Bridge, made by Joris Ivens in 1928. The two outer parts date back to 1878, the lifting section in the middle was placed in 1927 as a replacement for the original swing bridge.

Since 1993, the train traffic uses the railway tunnel and the Hef is no longer used. This picture shows the monument along with the slightly less noticeable Koninginnebrug. On the left we see the Noordereiland, on the right the neighbourhood Feyenoord, in the background the Nieuwe Maas river and Kralingen.

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.
