Memories Of Holland

Dutch poet Hendrik Marsman (1899-1940)

 

 

Thinking about Holland,
I see broad rivers
moving slowly through
endless lowlands.
rows of unthinkably
thin poplars
standing as high plumes
one above the other;
and sunken within
wonderful space,
farm houses
scattered throughout the land,
clusters of trees, villages,
cropped towers,
churches and elms
in one great association.

 
 

 

the air hangs low
and the sun is slowly
muffled in a gray
mottled fog,
and in the many provinces
the voice of the water
with its eternal calamities
is feared and heard.

 
   
     
 
 
 

EARLY WORKS / MONOCHROMES 85-89
So… I had to show some early works from the 80s all done in black and white in my darkroom upstairs. Most came from trips I did, or practising or from photoshoots in the studio I've been working. That time I was pretty much into monochrome photography. Here's just a glimps of all the negatives I've been scanning lately…
