The old lady…..de oude dame

This portrait is made for a command I had.I was living at that time in the same apartment building which was actually a service flat for elderly’s. The theme I had to work with for my study was family.Due to the fact I don’t have any family left, I thought to knock on the door of some of the elderly people I got to know and were visiting regularly.Some of the ladies I had in mind to do a portrait series with were very enthusiastic and some of them didn’t know what to do with my idea.Now, I’m a type of person that works in accordance of the moment its self and this also applies to work as a photographer. When I was standing on the doormat of this lovely lady she looked very nervous. So, I sat down and we drunk first a nice cup of tea to bring her, the surroundings of her apartment into a relaxing mood. In the meanwhile, I was preparing my gear for the coming shoot.Just on the moment that I felt ready for the work, I saw her sitting in her favorite chair being in her mind.At the same time, I felt her fear and insecurity arising in her, ‘cause she was now showing the state of beingness that not many have seen from her before and to someone, she just started to get to know better.That is what you can feel and see in this portrait.

 

Deze foto is gemaakt voor een opdracht die ik had te doen.Ik woonde toendertijd in een service flat voor ouderen. De opdracht die luidde was een familie foto te  maken. Aangezien ik zelf niet meer deel van een fysieke familie ben, bedacht ik om aan te kloppen bij ouderen bij wie ik met enige regelmaat langs kwam. Sommige waren reuze enthousiast en anderen wisten niet zo goed raad met wat ze nu konden en moesten verwachten. Nu ben ik het type mens dat alles doet vanuit het moment zo ook dus met mijn fotografie. Toen ik bij deze dame binnenkwam was zij ook heel zenuwachtig. We hebben eerst even een paar kopjes thee gedronken om haar en het moment in ontspanning te brengen. Ondertussen maakte ik mijn apparatuur gereed en op het moment dat ik voelde om aan het werk te gaan toen zat zij in haar stoel ingedachten te zijn.Tegelijkertijd voelde ik ook een vorm van angst en onzekerheid in haar opkomen want ze gaf zich zomaar aan iemand bloot die ze maar een beetje kende. En dat is wat in deze foto te voelen en te zien is…

Wooden train wagons…

 

I were a quite a while ago in a recycle shop and found these wooden train wagons. It reminds me of my childhood. never thought that these toys are still in play these days…

 

 

Next vacation, where shall it be?

What shall her next vacation destination be? She is still thinking…Or maybe the beach again? 

The street is a nice place that also can be used as a background for seeing stories arise you like to tell and create…

 

Swimming through…

A drake swimming through a reflection actually swimming through his own mirror. Swimming through his own shades of his shadow. One he tries to avoid but never can…

 

Master key…

There are countless keys  that fit into a lock. But its the master key, one does not wanna see or prefers to leave this one untouched. This is the one that will unlock a level of consciousness and awareness one is afraid for to be confronted with. It is the entrance to ones subconsciousness and seeing through the veils of illusion one has accepted  for real. But the journey one will step into when unlocking the main door one shall see that nothing is what it seems like. One shall delusion himself and experience what has kept him away from knowing who he is and why he’s here in this solar system and why it is that one is in the physical form he’s in and  the reason behind the specific place, area one lives in. Nothing in your life happens at random for all is an explanation. This will unfold when going through the many layers within you…

 

Simpleness of life…

 

Life is so simple only man makes itself unnecessarily difficult. All the torches they carry on their shoulders for such a too long time. This moodiness makes that many people do not dare to have this pure fun. Life now says to all of us, just enjoy and make it something fantastic! Doing so your heart will dance of joy and happiness and hereby make the connection with your deepest self will become stronger!

So simple can life be…

 

 

 

 

 

 

So many colors…

So many colors we see around us and yet we still feel the need to make distinction. But why is it that people do this? 

Thankfully life doesn’t do this cause life knows that every color is an expression of life its self and so it can’t do any form of discrimination…

He who knows, let all colors be there in harmony and solidarity, cause it is so irrelevant how someone looks. Actually it is about the content one carries to give to this world… 

 

 

 

 

 

Contemplation of life…

The contemplation of life is located in the following thought from which one creates a new creation and in how it is designed and will be used.From which a new flow of insights come forth leading into the steps required for building a new world as one has in mind.From the smoothness of the waves led by the hand of the water we know how to exploit every grain of sand properly, so a new human paradigm can arise…
