A series in the gallery Enchanted Forests.
The photos in this series are all made in the vicinity of my home town Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
When you walk deep into a forest, you’ll find them: secret and quiet places, where almost nobody ever comes.
The wind and the sun play with grass and leaves, painting together a constantly changing scenery…
The wind harasses the trees,
in search of his voice
to sing with the crows
The title of this photo is a line from the song Mr.Bojangles (I prefer the version by Bob Dylan !).
When I saw the brush strokes of light, the first lines of this song came into my mind:
I knew a man Bojangles and he’d dance for you in worn out shoes
Silver hair, ragged shirt and baggy pants, that old soft shoe
He’d jump so high, he’d jump so high, will he likely touch down ?
Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles, dance.
Everything in nature has its own rhythm.
Very occasionally, you can hear the trees humming to the rhythm of the breeze
