Atlantic Wall project

The Netherlands
In 2016 I started my photo project about the Atlantic Wall fortifications in The Netherlands. I hope to complete the project next winter. I've created a movie to share a first impression of the project.

Bluie East Two

Ikateq, Greenland
Bluie East Two

Today it's nine years ago I visited the abandoned WWII airfield Bluie East Two in Greenland. It was part of a boattrip to the Knut Rasmussen glacier and I didn’t know anything about the airfield and its history. This visit came as a complete surprise. We stayed there for two hours, which was way too short for me. I was so impressed by the place that I whished I could stay there for the rest of the day. The rusting vehicles in this remote and desolate landscape created a surreal sight.

After returning home I started collecting information about the airfield. Resources were limited, but I learned something about the presence of the United States in Greenland during World War II. Although I regret the pollution caused by the remnants of the airfield, its unknown and fascinating story inspired me.

My trip to Bluie East Two was a memorable one and it moved me into the direction of photographing historic landscapes.

Hürtgen Forest

Peterberg, Hürtgenwald, Germany
Hürtgen Forest

This weekend I visited the Hürtgen Forest in Germany to start a new project about the Battle of the Hürtgen Forest. The purpose of this first trip was to get an impression of the area and to visit the sites, which played a role during the battle. I’ve located several bunkers from the Westwall and was impressed by the many traces in the landscape. Trenches, artillery positions and foxholes are still clearly visible today.
