A Dutch book of kite aerial pictures
by GERRIT BART VOLGERS
This inhabitant of the Terschelling
island in Netherlands is showing us his work shot in 2005
and 2006. He flights a delta fishing kite from New Zealand.
To me, it looks like the famous Pauls' combination of the
flexiwing delta kite and the skyhook sail. There are 67
color photographs, all 25x17cm printed on a nice glossy
It's difficult to imagine how such
a small and flat island can shows so many various landscape,
only with sand, sea, grass, woods, ponds and houses. When
pictures are on the same spot, it's only to show the amazing
difference of the red tiles roofed houses between seasons,
and compare with and without snow cover in winter.
I shall say that all pictures have
all colors well balanced, true tints, contrasts corresponding
to the light and the subject, details are sharp. There are
great patterns, nice composition. The text extents only
to one page foreword. The images are all count. Bravo to
this glazier which is so well playing with the light and
express so much beauty.
