Today Susan Hol will tell you more about herself, by answering some questions.
1. When did you join the blog and why?
On twitter I saw a post, a retweet from a friend, with the theme of April 2012: You could rent an apartment in an apartment building with 25 windows. I rented apartment no. 2 and made a window scene. It was fun! At that moment I didn’t fully understand the concept of The Difference of 25, but now I do. I join as much as possible. Sometimes Roos makes it really difficult for me with themes that doesn’t make me instantly enthusiastic, but I always try and learn a lot from it. What I really love is the combination of the 25 artworks in one post. All these lovely artworks! Beautiful!
I always work with my photo’s. I’m a Dutch fine art photographer and I live in the very small village Chaugey, France.
I make photo’s of all kinds of objects from nature and culture, most notably the seaside, countryside and all kinds of cities, to create unique, outdoor inspired images. The basis of my photography is meeting: while walking between trees, buildings, flowers, plants, people and animals, on cultivated land and squares, in streets and lanes, over mountains, along seas, ravines and under the sky with big white clouds, I meet my pictures. They wait patiently for me to be ready to see them. After making pictures I store them for a long time, a sort of ripe process, like wine. After that I pick en choose the best and often work on it for a long time to make the image I want.
Some work I made for The Difference of 25:
I made an e-book. You can find it on my website www.susanholfotografie.nl and download it for free if you fill in your name and e-mail address. It is in Dutch, so I’m sorry for the ones who cannot understand that! But the main thing is of course that you can see the images, and maybe you can use (the often terrible but a bit helpful) translation in Google to understand a bit of the text. I sell pictures on http://susanhol.werkaandemuur.nl/. You can also like my Facebookpage.
3. What other hobbies do you have?
Art! Nature! Old stuff in cities (doors, handles, steps, iron things). Everything I meet in a day. The experiences I have had in my life. And last but not least my work as a philosopher in the analytic aesthetics.
