About this site

This is the 9th incarnation of my photography website. The first version of the site hit the internet in 2001. At that time it was all handcoded HTML. It stayed that way until I discovered Concrete5 CMS in 2009.

This site is the fifth one that is build on Concrete5. All previous version were 'analog black & white only' using medium format cameras (Mamiya 645, Mamiya 645E, Kiev 60 TTL) and a 35mm rangefinder Voigtlaender Bessa R camera.

That changed this year because I sold the Bessa R and Mamiya 645E sets and bought a nice Olympus OM-E 10 Mark II camera. Now digital color (and monochrome) photography is shown alongside 'artisan' analog black & white photos.

I also use my iPhone when I come across a nice picture and don't have a 'real' camera at hand. 

After all: the best camera is the one you carry with you...

Evolution of this website

The internet is developing rapidly. The evolution of my website over the past 16 years is a good example of these changes. Faster internet can cope with larger screen sizes,  much bigger images and more sophisticated websites.

I've kept quite a few screenshots of earlier versions of my photography website so I decided to make a small compilation to illustrate these changes over time. Click 'Evolution' in the submenu above.
