150 years of photography in Europe

In the year 1989, Europe celebrated 150 years anniversary of photography
Many different projects were done in different countries and so, I took part in different projects through the year.

One of the biggest project for me was to photograph Dublin and west of Ireland. Traveling from Amsterdam with my van car (my darkroom) and all my cameras and the equipment which I needed to developing the images through England to Ireland.
Discovering a new place using an old - primitive technique is all ways exciting… You take the attention of the public! The people in the city or in the country side are not use to see a photographer using just metal cans as cameras, van- car which functions as darkroom….. and so interesting stories and relationships are developing.

Creating communication with the local people is one of the most exciting experience in traveling.
