My next photo series is a set of photographs I made today while visiting the Dutch coastal town of Zandvoort. There is so much going on and so much to see at beaches and the’re great stages for photography in my opinion. I think of the beach as showing off, many people being a swagger, being beautiful or thinking being beautiful. Somehow many of these coastal towns aren’t that pretty, some are like almost vulgar, some try to remain mondain, but they still bring lots of enjoyment to visiting people. The combination can be strong and compelling to me.
