Polapan London

Polapan London is the working title of a new project I have just started and you can 'blame' Covid 19 lock down as after staying at home for about seven weeks and just do a bit of food shopping I had to go out and make some pictures. I suppose we all get

Scanning again

Bought a desktop PC for peanuts and managed to get the scanner working again, which is after almost 3 years of non activity. The setup has improved that much that speed and cataloging is a lot better than ever before. So over the next few weeks expect a ton of stuff, fashion shoots from the

Diamond Head-Cairo Son and Dead Man’s Whiskey-Islington o2 Academy

Opener Dead Man's Whiskey, from London,  managed to charm me with their heavy rock, I wouldn't mind seeing them again actually. For a band that has only been together two years they show a lot of promise. Cairo Son's music is not my cup of tea, so a after the three songs no flash, yet

Metal On Metal Festival in Ulft

If I am not mistaken this is the 2nd time that this festival is being organised in the Dru Cultuur Fabriek in Ulft in the east of the Netherlands. Almost 500 people had bothered to show up and check out a handful of tribute bands such as Unforgiven and The Art Of Pantera, but also

Die Die Die at The Shacklewell Arms

Why the band is playing this place for the 4th (or is the 5th?) time in a row is a mystery to me. It's nice and local for me as well, yet at the same time from a lighting p.o.v. an abomination. Having 5 LED cans set at some blueish/pinkish wash for the entire set,

Hospital

Since Sept. 1st I have been released from hospital. What should have been a routine one day situation on June 8th turned into a 80 day nightmare with eleven operations (9 fully under, 2 local in case you wanted to know) as the infection inside my foot proved to be much harder to control than

Estoril and Sintra

Quick 6 day break in Portugal, near Lisbon in Estoril and Sintra. This is just before going into hospital getting operated on my foot so was not very mobile, so to speak. Estoril is a posh area, near Cascais which by itself is a little too touristy for my liking. Sintra I had been to

Abney Park

I live not far away from it yet it had been quite some time I had visited Abney Park. I remember the first time being roughly 15 years ago when I worked on the Derelict Sensation Project. The park does look better on sunny days.

Porto

Exactly two weeks ago I was in Porto for a weekend break with the missus. Lovely town to spend some time off in. We stayed at The Pestana, which was right at the front. And right across from the port distilleries which we visited for a taster. The bridges are very imposing with their Meccano style

Malta and Gozo

A few shots from my recent break in Malta and Gozo. I took some snaps of the places we visited and also messed around with blurring. I managed to get a few shots for The Kiss as well. I shall post one of the better ones.   These pix are taken of Valletta, Azure Window,

Die Die Die in Paris and London

The boys are back in town, mainly to record a new album and to do a couple of warm up shows before they embark on a two week tour in China. I catch the Eurostar a few hours before they arrive in Paris and wander about the Montmartre district, an area I had not been

East Sussex

Some pix from last weekend in East Sussex when we went to friends down in Hastings , visited Seven Sisters' cliffs, Rye and Winchelsea. Weather forecast was supposedly dire, well it was anything but that. Windy and sunny and in the end we had a few drops, but nothing that spoiled the fun. Great times. Love

My mentor

My mentor Harry van der Brugghen. In October/November 1988. I left the military at the end of August and wanted to continue with photographic studies. I had my work published on most Heavy Metal bands from 1982 until 1987 and during my military service (1987/88) I had my camera with me at all times. After my stint

Rockliffe Hall

Samantha Crossley at Rockliffe Hall, outtake of a Spa Secrets shoot. I remember the overall temperature being so hot in the pool area that I was gagging for an ice bath afterwards.

Neurosis

In November it will have been ten years ago that I took these. I was there with Capricorns, as they opened and Made Out Of Babies, who are Neurosis' label mates and performed in between them. Great show, the lighting made it near impossible to shoot images that were not blurred, then again that added

Hastings and Jimmy Bain

I have just read that Jimmy Bain has passed away, I interviewed Jimmy when he was in Dio in 1983 when they played in Utrecht (a video of that show is on youtube) and also at the Pinkpop festival the year after. Really nice and above all down to earth bloke. Had then already plenty of history

Rome

I had to go to Rome for some business, but had some time to spend on grabbing a few shots while I was there. Twenty years ago I was there as Peter Gallina had an exhibit there at the Palazzo Esposizioni and I had made his prints for him. It was in July 1995 and it
