The old lady… 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…

This is why we should consider changing our life style…

Today I came across with an article where I saw people demonstrating against the plans of the industry to change a UNESCO listed National park in Bulgaria into a ski resort and for commercial use. It all has to do with Pirin, National park in Bulgaria. Another example of the fact that the industry reacts on a wish list that is collectively created by humans who still do not want to see that their way of living literally kills the environment. The majority of humanity still wants to keep up a life style they don’t wanna see the trail of destruction it creates. Instead they pass the environmental problems towards their government in the false ‘hope’ that they will fix it, but they won’t. The true solution lays in our selves. Humanity has to clean up their inner mess and re-consider  what truly is important and stimulates not only their personal  but also the collective path of progression if they do this their surroundings will change too and finally humanity will be able to create long term solutions that will come from their highest level of consciousness and through this humanity can build a new human paradigm that will lead into a higher progression rate and into higher responsibility rate and through this into higher energetic standards and uplift the beauty of this magnificent planet  to new heights and through this the angels of perception will change within us so other doors of inner knowledge can be re-opened. We have to realize that we have to re consider all the things we are participating in. For example the meat industry, we also have to stop rely on what others tell and make us believe. Humanity has to pick up its own responsibility in every facet and aspect of their life and stop being dependent…

Undo yourself from all that has been taught to you and remove all these own and by others created beliefs and belief systems and stand in your own truth and knowledge…

If we as humanity do so….. then this will still exist….and uplifted into a higher vibrant beauty…



Another look to….


Today, the trees were inviting me too have a closer look at them. To see beyond just the ordinary. Again I realized that there are still so many people who do not truly look into the world they are part of and are living in. They still take all that they can see as for granted. When I were laying on my couch and looking through the glass of my garden door and used it as a large photo frame, I started to feel that my physical eyes were acting as two different camera’s that were perceiving the trees outside from different angels of perception and there it was, that one moment where everything comes together and I created these photos of the trees in my back yard today….

I find it so amazingly how expressive trees can be and the many artistic inspirations they are presenting you!

Pieces of…

Life is like a huge puzzle. Every step you take leads you towards another piece that you may grab to see what the message or situation or a piece of the past you have to face is, so you can learn from it or can clear it out in a way you don’t have to torch it any longer with you.

And today I have seen something from the past that were the exact piece I had to see so now others can fall into place and I received another level of understanding another facet of the diamond in me, which I now have cleared and is shinning its light…

Thank you life,



What is time?

What is time?

Is it a concept ? Invented to fool ourselves, in thinking that we then have a grip on life and through this can controle it? Or is it a way so we can constantly be distracted and being busy with millions of things that actually do not matter.

What is time?

A looping system, so you can go back and forth. From one parallel to another? Travelling to pick up, pull back those parts or pieces of yourself that belongs to you so you can become whole again…

What is time?

A vague memory of what  you once were? Is time invented to give a framework or fundament to and for this solar system through which life can unfold by the creation of cycles?

What is time?

A handy archive where we can store all and everything we have experienced so when we get confronted with situations we can lean back into this handy archived library?

What is time?

Is it the same as the endless flow of the vital life force we all are an expression of, which we have named time so our brain can coupe with it?

What is time?

Have you ever took the time to think or contemplate about it?
