Over het boek
a fotografic review of concerts of De Kift, the
dutch music band, that combines pop and rock
with strong brass-band and punk elements.
the foto's are hardly edited, so capture the
moments as lively as possible. no flash light
is used with the exeption of 5 foto's at the most.
full colour, energetic, beautifull instruments
and theatrical appearances are some of the
possible characteristics for this book.
it is the first book of this fotographer.
born in 1954 in the hotel/restaurant/playhall situation of my parents, i grew up, always wanted to become an artist, making drawings and paintings. I did the rietveld art academy in amsterdam and still work making my things in my personal way. making fotographs of my work lead to use the fotography also for its own means and certainy when I got my first digital camera some years ago, there was no more holding back. I work on severeal series/subjects and new books on those will follow. I also use my foto's as sketches for my paintings. in music I was a late starter: round 30 I began to studie bansuri, the indian flute and round 40 the djembe, the african drum, came in. I still play them in 2 different bands. bamboo flute
