Of all the things I know
I understand almost nothing

the Sixties 1: my first...





Probably in 1960 miss Vroemen (one of the nurses who lived in our house, after-war housing shortage), the smiling girl, gave me (little one left) my very first camera: a Hit. I couldn't develop the film and didn't believe it was real - and look at the picture I made today: I wasn't thàt wrong! (She cooked great onions, and I still have the pocket-knife she gave me; memories, memories...)

A few years later I published my first photos. At the time I loved Record Rapid, and Portriga, the brownish chloride-papers. Canon FX on probably Tri X in Promicrol.
