The photograph series, Empty Lands, are the result of my love for nature and the immenseness of empty landscapes. In some parts of the world these landscapes are easily found but not in the Netherlands (Holland). The Netherlands is well known for the typical “Dutch Light” admired by many around the world through pictures of our famous 17th and 18th century painters. The dutch landscape is changing in ways objected by many dutch citizens. Nevertheless we are part of that change and the loss of empty horizons (Like all people in western industrialized countries people have a large ecological foot print). The pictures are often mysterious, un-dutch and powerful. They are not part of the commonplace picture collections of cows, wind mills and tulips. It shows a different Holland.
