Dutch, leisure landscapes

Observing different landscapes, I am exploring the relationship between people and places. The focus lies on the natural leisure landscapes, with often the city looming in the background. While the high and distant viewpoint gives a sense of contemporary
existence of each of the landscapes, the photographs are taken with perspective that refers to classical painting.

I carefully compose my photographs and sometimes wait for hours for that single moment. For me that defines the difference between looking and observing, and between taking a photograph and making a photograph.
