A showcase of my work through my years as a professional photographer.
Corfu, known as Kerkyra in Greek, owns its name the Nymph Korkira, the daughter of the River God, Aesopos. According to the myth, Poseidon, God of the Sea, fell in love with Nymph Korkira, kidnapped her and brought her on this island. Archaeological excavations have proved that the island was inhabited since the Paleolithic Era. According to the myth, Corfu was the island of the Phaeacians, where Odysseus landed on his return trip to Ithaca.
The Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region, is known for its Mediterranean beaches and golf resorts. Whitewashed fishing villages on low cliffs overlooking sandy coves were transformed in the 1960’s, and now its central coast between Lagos and Faro is lined with villas, hotels, bars and restaurants. The region’s western Atlantic coast and rugged interior are less developed.
From riding bikes to using public transport, I love the culture in The Netherlands. I find that it has a unique sophistication that’s hard to match. Find yourself a lovely cafe, order a beer and watch the world go round, it makes for a wonderful place to people watch. Parents riding bikes with two and three kids in tow still makes me smile after 16 years of living here.
