The artificial in the natural, the natural in the artificial. Humans interfere, nature takes partly back. Nature masters the interference. A new reality begins to take shape, of nature and culture together.
The photos can be printed on a fine art paper of 100% cotton rags and acid free, like the Baryta of Hahnemühle. The combination with ink that includes lightfast pigments from a Epson-K3 printer results in a UV-resistance of approximate 60 years. After this period, decline starts. How fast depends on the situation. If you want more protection from scratches, you can choose for luster paper + Epson K3 ink and laminate.
Printed on paper, the photo can be glued on dibond with a U-profile on the backside, for hanging. Framing however with UV-filter glass (museumglass), gives the best results, it wil stay the same for hundreds of years. — Please feel free to contact for more information.
Fields of delphinium on the country estate of Vollenhove. Originally laid out for commercial reasons, are now thinned and run wild. However, even in this state, you still can experience the original colour scheme.
A sunny day in the former production forest of Douglas fir trees in the Forestry of Austerlitz, The Netherlands. Since the nineties of the 20th century the Dutch Forestry Commission chooses to 'water down' its monoculture, which means that smaller trees such as birch and rowan are not removed any more.
Wallenberg is a part of Forestry Austerlitz where right-angled sections ar being divided by straight paths. Some sections are still in production; here the trees are planted so close to each other that it is not really possible to walk through. Other parts (photo) aren't very long out of production yet, here there's a bit more room between the trunks. But the amount of density is still that much that a photograph becomes a composition of exteriors.
The theatrical character of a bocage landscape, formed by juniper bushes. These bushes take ages to grow. They were always a very important element in the landscape of this region, Drenthe (The Netherlands). Many folktales are about these bushes and when you are there, you understand why. — The Dutch Forestry Commission creates the circumstances in this nature reserve (National Parc Dwingelderveld) that enables the juniper bushes to continue developing. So we can experience the landscape of the past.
The plan of the parc determined that the trees where allowed only to grow in the shape of a star, all lanes in the parc meet at the centre. — However, in the course of centuries, roles have switched; like small creatures we now walk at the bottom of a canyon, like visitors in a modern cathedral.
