Since childhood I like to observe. In 1975 the camera became a helping friend in observing. As a scientist in human behaviour my professional life is committed to people with hindrances of life, together seeking answers and hope. As a passionate photographer I am equally angled to explore a world of hope and beauty, not showing its hindrances. Since repeating pictures of beauty have a tendency to get boring, it is a challenge to present inspiring ones. Not often succeeding I keep trying. Both the succes and the trying give fun.
