I think for almost everyone that it is special to take pictures while you travel.
I have been able to travel quite a bit and always took my camera with me.
That resulted in this portfolio.


In 1994 I visited Belfast as a photography student.
At that time there were many problems in Northern Ireland and a war situation.
With my Nikon F3 I traveled through the neighborhoods and was able to photograph a lot.
Partly due to fantastic guidance from local youth clubs.
It resulted in a series of exhibitions and many publications.
A great start to my photography career.

Naked men Festival

A Hadaka matsuri is a type of  Japanese festival in which participants wear a minimum amount of clothing;
usually just a Japanese loincloth (called fundoshi) and rarely completely naked.
The most famous festival is the Saidai-ji Eyo Hadaka Matsuri held at Saidaiji Temple in Okayama.
Every year, in the winter, over 9,000 men participate in this festival in hopes of gaining luck for the entire year.
One of these pictures was a finalist at the National Geographic Award.
The pictures are published in 29 countries.
