The Debate, April 2019

People with a passion are a joy to photograph. And if there is one special kind of people with a passion, it must be politicians.

Moving Fire Arts – Theatrum Movere, April 2019

This was the pinnacle of The City of Wings Ypres for me: Theatrum Movere of Moving Fire Arts (now, I have to admit that I have only seen a fraction of the huge range of performances). Due to a fortunate coincidence I have seen them twice: once in the afternoon and a second time after… Read more »

Bloodmoon, January 2019

Early birds could witness a unique spectacle this morning, if they wanted. Not only was it a blood moon (full lunar eclipse), but also a super moon (moon at the closest point) and a wolf moon (first full moon of the year). So a blood super wolf moon. Or is it a blood super wolf… Read more »
