Hungerwinter 1 – start of a new series

It is a bit dark, but I like it. There is also a beta version. I started photographing for the series somewhere last winter – among other things inspired by stories about certain parts of Belgium and France still being off limits since WWI (the so called ‘Great war’) due to the poison in the earth. 

We do not see that many broken trees in landscapes – or at least in the Netherlands I have hardly ever seen them. It is in the long list of things that are hidden from our view because of civilization? Just like sick people – and epidemics and death and other nasty stuff.

Today on reddit there was a story from a doctor who told about his experience with two different patients for whom there were no more options – and apparently that used to be very rare until Covid came along.

These and other things are an inspiration here. More will follow. Not sure where it goes – I got a whole lot of pictures of trees without leaves.

New way to print … on painted surfaces

I have been experimenting with a new way to print and it enables me to print on painted surfaces in both black and white – like I have don here – and in color.

This means for me that I am more and more mixing digital and analog – where analog has become more important to me. I like that I can finally print on rough surfaces, on surfaces that I painted before. I can print on surfaces that are painted in gold, that are shiny.
