In the flow

Photographing someone is always an act of co-creating, as I was trying to put in words in this post. Just with other forms of connecting with an other human being, you sometimes come across someone who you are in a continuous flow with. With Joachim I had this experience and that resulted in having Joachim […]

Fearless joy

I live near an elementary school and being a photographer means that I often work at home and hear the little children having their first break at school. It is truly a joy to hear the children screaming, yelling or just making weird noises. The total lack of fear of being judged by others is […]

Our daughter (although divorced, I prefer to say ‘our’ instead of ‘my’) turns 20 this month. That makes her no longer a teenager which, on itself, is something I have to digest…as I come to think about it.

Aligned and well

When I was shooting for a storytelling project I am conducting these days for the city of Amsterdam, my path crossed that of Sjuul. Sjuul is, besides an awesome guy, a personal trainer and movement/mobility/Capoeira specialist. We had a chat and decided to have an impromptu photo shoot which turned out quite well. Jules knows every […]

Sandro & Claude

‘True love shines through one’s eye’ This sentence popped up in my mind when I thought about Sandro Miller and his wife Claude. I still cherish meeting the famous photographer Sandro Miller and Claude. As if meeting a photographer with such an immense talent was not already enough to have a profound impact on me, meeting him […]

Desert Rose

When I started this blog a few years back, I decided to call it ‘Pix And Thoughts’.
