In my portfolio you will find a special triptych in the series ‘A land of polders and rivers’, part of the Gallery ‘Untouched land’: three photos that I made without the abstraction or impressionism through camera movement, which are so characteristic for my work.
It is a series that I made on a misty autumn morning along the river Maas, about 10 kilometers from my home town Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
I woke up early that morning, shortly after sunrise. I saw the fog, but I also saw the blue sky directly above me. I cycled to the river, at that moment I knew for sure that the circumstances would make it possible to make special photos.
What I saw was the amazing atmosphere like in an impressionist painting.
The light, the colors and the scene were perfect…
The silence was magical, the smell of wet grass was as an intoxicating fragrance.
I decided to make this three photos with a clearly visible, coarse grain that gives the photos an impressionist feel. As you can expect from me; no ‘post processing’ of the photos.
These photos are kind of special to me, because they bring back the experience that I had when I arrived at the river…
The photo ‘In the mist of an early morning’ is the first in this triptych.
