About the work

Birth of Spring III I dreamed that, as I wandered by the way, Bare Winter suddenly was changed to Spring, And gentle odours led my steps astray, Mixed with a sound of waters murmuring From the poem 'The Question' by Percy Bysshe Shelley A warm winter... a sunny day... early in the morning... the rising sun just above the hills... a cold lake where a veil of fog rises to the clear sky... These are the ingredients for a triptych, made a few weeks ago from the sloping land bordering the western bank of the Visby Bredning, a part of the Limfjord in North Jutland, Denmark. It was such a rare moment in which you see the color palette of an almost snowless, too warm winter, suddenly transition into the palette of the early spring. 'Birth of spring III' is one of 3 photos I made that morning and part of the series 'Whispering reeds', part of the gallery 'Untouched land'. All limited edition prints are signed and numbered and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Many sizes available up to 140 H x 210 W cm. Other materials (canvas, Baryta paper, mounted on hard foam, print on extreme gloss foil, framed) and other sizes on request. Do you prefer to frame the artwork yourself (or have it framed) instead of mounting it on alu-dibond? No problem, send me a message and I'll send you a quote of the print on museum quality paper. Production time is 7-10 working days. All my artworks are original photographs 'made in camera'. This means that I never use filters or editing software to manipulate my photos. This is a custom made fine art inktjet / giclée print. Since it will be custom made for you, there is NO RETURN OPTION.

About the artist

My main inspiration is the vulnerability of nature. I see changes in nature. I see the effects of urbanization, the pressure of pollution and of the changes in the climate. I hope to make people aware of that vulnerability by sharing what I feel when I look around me. Daily life in the western world is overflowing with stimuli that continuously force our senses to the limit of their abilities. In my photographs I seek to capture the simplicity and tranquility of natural environments and to share my experience of nature’s soul. I was born in the city of Gouda, the Netherlands in 1959. In the summer of 2018 my wife and I moved from a larger city in The Netherlands to a small hamlet in northwest Jutland. We fell in love with the Thy-region about ten years ago… We live a simple, minimalistic life, as self sufficient and sustainable as possible, and we love it… The North Sea and the nature reserve National Park Thy are my muses.
