Of all the things I know
I understand almost nothing

Century of Photography


This spring and early summer a spent a lot of time birdwatching. I also made a series of ± 20 drawings: "the Art of Wrestling". So now it's time to return to the cog-wheels, the guillotine- and Compur-shutters of real cameras. Starting in August I shall make a trip to 1910, with stops at every decennium. Roll-film, sheet, even some colour will pass. Looking forward to it - anyone seen my rucksack?

The picture: yes, it's me. Almost exactly 60 years ago.
