Artist's description:

THE WADDEN SEA
This image is part of an ongoing series which is made along the coast of The Wadden Sea. A national park in the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. It is on the Unesco World Heritage list because of its ecological importance as the world's largest unbroken system of intertidal sand and mud flats.
It is a landscape which is constantly changing before your eyes. Maybe by a certain incidence of light or just the blowing of the wind.
What attracts me in this landscape is the natural process of change and the continuation of time which are very visible here. In each image I try to show the present and at the same time the past.

PINHOLE
All the images are made with a homemade pinhole camera.
Using the pinhole technique is one of the most authentic ways to record photographic images.
The technique is based on the principle of the camera obscura which is centuries old. Basically it is nothing more then a lightproof box with, in the middle of one side, a tiny little hole instead of a lens.
The light works its way through the pinhole right into the enclosed room and that is how at the opposite side of the pinhole an image appears which is upside down.
We can preserve the image by putting material which is sensitive to light at the side where the image shows up and develop it after exposure.

The white line is caused by moving the camera for a few seconds after exposure facing the sun. Actually like light painting with the sun.

WHY
I am attracted by the cyclic movement of time and water as an important aspect of our human existence and as the most mysterious thing there is.
This series is as much about the landscape itself as it is about my own feelings towards this landscape and live in general. Being one with nature provokes my imagination.
It causes a different notion of time and the association dominates. In this way I try to dissociate my photographs from time and place in order to emphasize some sort of poetic feeling.

The image is about the landscape and our relation to it. This area has a very rich history.
On the image you see me in the middle of this landscape trying to show my own relationship with this area.

PRINT
This print is a digital c-print which is a print that has been exposed using lasers or LED lights. After the exposure the paper is processed in photographic chemicals, pretty much like the old way.
The prints are produced with a Lambda Printer.
C-prints or lambda prints are known for their realistic appearance and their long-lasting colorfast.
The print is numbered, signed and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
I personally check the print for color, contrast and irregularities before shipping.

MOUNTING
The print is dibond and acrylic glass mounted. The print is mounted on dibond which is a sandwich of aluminum board with polyethylene in between.
The front of the print is glued to the acrylic glass. The result is a completely flat mount of the image.
The print comes with a metal hanging system at the back of the panel.
