Roxy Diamond

I am currently working on a series about Drag Queens. Gender diversity is a theme I have been working on since I started being serious about photography. This time I am also really serious about the idea of publishing a book with material ranging from the 1970s up to 2018. My goal is to photograph at least a hundred Drag Queens, so [...]

Snow

It is almost genetic, I guess. I was brought up in a family with a super 8mm camera and later a video 8. It was mainly my mother’s hobby but my father had to push the buttons. I always doubted his true interest for film, because he did not use the camera very often. Unless of course, there was snow outside. My father could spend [...]

Russian Poetry Lesson

We do not always get along very well, but Alexander is my only real contact in Russia and I love the man. I worked with him on the first Russian Museum for Erotic Art, at the Novy Arbat, quite close to the Kremlin. I was amazed by the productivity of the Russian construction workers who built the largest museum of its kind in little over [...]

The 40th Anniversary of the Rockers series

I can hardly grasp it, but it is 40 years ago that I ditched the advertising agency I was doing product photography for and started working on the Rockers series. I made thousands of photographs and the project at first almost left me broke, but over the years it became my bestselling project. The photographs are still popular and at [...]

November (Dutch)

It is this time of the year again. Every autumn I am reminded of a poem called ‘November’ by Dutch Poet J.C. Bloem. This year I decided to create an animation based on a sculpture of his face and the sound bytes. I am having fun.

Bulldog Reading Dylan Thomas (remake)

Some time ago the original bulldog reading poetry that I posted in 2007 on YouTube reached over 30K views. Not really spectacular if you consider the fact that it took 10 years to get there. Still the clip is very dear to me, because it was my second animation. Celebrating the clip’s 10th Anniversary I decided to do a remake based [...]

In the Studio (1)

My partner Eveline is a real Paparazzi when it comes to documenting my work in the small studio at Nieuwmarkt 221. This raw clip is about two of my favorite models: Tess and Lena. In general it is a good setup if you have two people coming over to be photographed in the same time slot. It is a lot better than the situation where a model [...]

The Horror Doll

For quite a stretch I worked for a site called The Kinky Web. I was writing columns in Dutch about Kink. The owner of the site was submissive at heart so his whole concept of ‘Kink’ was shrunk into promoting commercial Dominatrixes. Going to this site would make a person believe that love is a state of mind that can be bought [...]

WAM – Models having fun

WAM as you may know or may not know stands for Wet and Messy. It is fetish, actually and it can be experienced with all sorts of fluids. In this particular case it is yogurt. I have done quite a few yogurt shoots. It is simple. We buy 12 liters of yogurt and put it on the heating for a while. Then we poor it over the models or have them [...]

Shooting fish in a barrel

To me as a photographer who likes to direct a photograph it is almost awkward to photograph a highly professional model like Alicia. It feels like shooting fish in barrel. Every pose she strikes is perfect. There is nothing to do for me but pushing my camera button and worrying if the flashes can keep up with the pace. The results were [...]
