RIPE Atlas Probe 2018

It is not easy photographing technical gadgets that are not produced to look sleek in a home environment. And the RIPE Atlas probe from the European Internet Registry, RIPE NCC, is no exception. There are thousands of these probes located all around the world collecting and measure Internet connectivity. Anyone can access this data via Internet traffic maps, streaming data visualisations and an API.

Special Publishers Fair 2018

My book, Fast Track to Stock Photography is on sale as part of the Special Publishers Fair (Beurs van Bijzondere Uitgevers) in the Paradiso, Amsterdam. At this fair, publishers from the Netherlands and Belgium present and sell their new and old titles in the field of literature, literary non-fiction and visual arts. The contribution of these specialist publishers to the Dutch-language book offer is indeed relatively small, but of high quality; every important Dutch author has been published by these publishers in the course of his or her career.

Author photo for book publication: “Dood kind”

Next week, the book ‘Dood Kind‘ (Dead Child) will be published featuring a portrait photo I have taken of the author Norbert Splint. The book features stories depicting various suicide methods and main characters which become cynical, racist or both. The stories are timeless, do not have a plot and can, except for a single internet connection, take place in 1947 and 2017 or in between.
