Excerpt from ‘Nabelichting’, Chapter 2, The Bullshit Business
In a few years time my life had changed completely. From a shy boy with a camera, living in a basement, into a fashion and advertising photographer with his own studio and a day rate he had never dreamed of.
When I started out working for magazines, I photographed people who were growing their own vegetables, protested against ‘the bomb’ or got stuck in traffic, now it were mainly beautiful women, artists and musicians that appeared in front of my camera.
I slowly acquired an artistic freedom which made it possible to express my feelings and ideas in the widest sense. It was great fun.
