SWITZERLAND – TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY
NETHERLANDS – LAND OF WATER / RIVERS
‘Water connects and divides. Over the centuries, the Dutch became more and more resourceful in taking and conquering the many water barriers. They built quays, locks, weirs and other waterworks. “True triumphs of engineering”, as Jac. P. Thijsse mentioned it in his Verkade album Onze groote rivieren. Abroad, people are especially amazed at the Dutch aqueducts: the Dutch build bridges so that a river can cross the street! It is, of course, also typically Dutch when you are driving on the highway, to see a boat gliding by somewhere above your head in invisible water.’
From: Rivierenland – The Netherlands from Aa to Waal.
WILD TANZANIA – WILDLIFE, NATURE AND CULTURE
The Serengeti is known worldwide for the wildebeest migration. It was the German Bernhard Grzimek who put it on the world map in 1959 with the documentary Serengeti shall not die. The area includes the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater, the Maswa Game Reserve – all in Tanzania – and in Kenya the Masai Mara Reserve.
On the border of the Serengeti NP and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is the Ndutu Area, a mix of grassland and open acacia forest, surrounding Lake Ndutu. In the Ndutu Area, the calves of the wildebeest are born en masse in a few weeks at the beginning of the year.
PEOPLE – CHANCE ENCOUNTERS AND COMMISSIONED
DUTCH WATERLINES – UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE
The New Dutch Waterline and the Defence Line of Amsterdam have together been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Dutch Waterlines since 2021.
With a chain of varied nature, hidden fortresses, sturdy castles and typical Dutch landscapes, the two water lines formed a defense line of more than 200 km. Water was used to protect the west against the enemy from the east.
Now the water lines are an oasis of peace, full of secrets, stories and special objects. Discover the nature, culture and landscape of the Dutch Waterlines in this portfolio.

JAEGERSBORG DYREHAVE – UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE
Just north of the Copenhagen suburb of Klampenborg is the park Jaegersborg Dyrehave. It was once a fenced hunting park of the Danish royal house. The beautiful Hermitage hunting lodge – Ermitageslottet – is located in the middle of the park. The 1,100-acre park is fenced, but deer roam freely within the park. The red deer and fallow deer are so used to people that they come very close and are easy to approach. The park has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2015 as part of a series of old hunting grounds north of Copenhagen.
All images in this portfolio are made within a few days in 2004, shot with Fuji Velvia 50.
