"Young civil servant of the year 2011" award

In the beautiful environment of the old town hall of Rotterdam, at the 27th of January, 
a serious battle was fought between four contestants to win the prestigious award "young civil servant of the year 2011".
I was asked to create an appropriate photopainting, which was well-received ;-)

The winner, Pieter van Hofwegen, projectmanager at the ministry of general affairs.

The future civil servant: transparant, idealistic and open minded.

Cabo Verde

Last spring we went to Cabo Verde: Sal, Sao Vicente and San Antao. Islands which were covered in sunlight and where houses, people, flowers and even the sea looked more than colourful. A combination of brand new and very old roads made it possible to admire all wind directions of the islands. Apart from the visual pleasure and the nice temperature we enjoyed the rich seafood and the friendliness of the people. Cabo Verde, a great place to be!

At the beginning of 2010 I was asked by the mayor of Dordrecht to brighten up the meeting rooms in the new wing of the municipality office. This resulted in the exposition "Water, living and working". In combination with the beautiful blue of the interior decoration I created 28 photo works in which the purpose of the place and the movement of nature come together. A few examples are shown in this blog.  For people who are interested it is possible to make an appointment and enjoy the exhibition live.
