Pure Joy!

My reason for choosing this image is that it is all about what is most important in our world: connections between people with pure love and joy!  There is enough love to make it all the way around the world and unite all of humanity!  Let’s bring everyone together!

A Fresh Perspective Photography is more than just a vehicle for capturing the world around me; it provides me with a palette and a set of brushes, with which I paint not only what I see, but also look to express the emotions that are evoked by the scene in front of me in that moment. Growing up in the Netherlands exposed me to a wide cross-section of visual arts that laid the foundation of my photographic view of all that surrounds me. Early influences were the Dutch Masters of the 17th century, to whom I was introduced by my grandfather during museum explorations; favorites among them are the scenes of quotidian life depicted by Jan Steen and Frans Hals and the vivid landscapes of Jacob van Ruisdael. My classical high school education was supplemented by the Boijmans Van Beuningen museum, where I spent many a lunch hour exploring its great collection. Here I was introduced to surrealism with a particular love for the approach taken by Salvador Dali; Dali also rekindled my appreciation for the work of Hieronymus Bosch, who often showed the folly of us mortals. Universal Connections My approach to any photographic subject is to look for understanding first; in this I look to establish either a connection between the viewer and the subject or capture the connection of the subject with its surroundings. The captured image then aims to portray this connection from a perspective that is part of my personal interpretation. This interpretation is often a form of externalized introspection, which may alternately display the connection of isolated beings and items with their environment or highlight the whimsy of the profound world, in which we find ourselves. The universe is full of connections, many of which are waiting to be discovered; part of my journey as a photographer is to document these connections. Any assignment, be it an event, a product shoot or a portrait session is always approached through communication with the client; this is where the first connection is established. Ideas are exchanged and a collaborative plan of action forms, ultimately resulting in a set of images that aim to exceed the expectations of each client. And, lest we forget, it is important to have fun while practicing the serious business of photography!

  1. Great post, Frank. We always enjoy sharing our photos, and sometimes some words too, to all of you, and the kind words that are given. Many thanks for your support and mention. Happy Autumn!

  2. Congratulations to all the beautiful entries! I didn’t mean in any kind of way to ignore this great challenge. I really had some, but I was so extremely busy with other tasks, so I postponed it to the last minute and miss it… I’m looking forward the new one! 🙂

  3. Hi Frank, Thanks for this beautiful entry and indeed, family and human connections are key in our lives.

    I went through this post again and had a good laugh with your remark about LEGO, LOL. Indeed, LEGO was far from my mind while making the post last week. Sometimes, choosing photos or knowing which pictures to select could be tasking. Haha. 🙂
