Netherlands Antilles

I am not interested in telling a story. I will not try to give a complete overview.
I hope to make people more aware of the beautiful images around them; the interesting shapes of the weathered (coral) stones on the beach, how the reflection of a ship colors the water, a detail of a monument, or the pattern of a leaf.
I am fascinated by material. The process of erosion and damage. The contrast between skins. I make use of this in rhythmic compositions or forms.
In my photographs you can see I am a ceramist at heart.
