About Me


Make life simple


I am married and we have a son from 15 years.
Professionaly I am a bookkeeper on a golfcourse.
I like meeting people and are very interessed in Berlin like the city,Berlin Wall, Trabant, Treuhand,
Practika cameras, and so on.
In 1974 I grounded in my village a Photoclub.
I take pictures from everything.
I was honour photographer in West Flanders for 5 times.
I have a complete collection about Berlin Wall, DDR ..
for instance an original segment from the Berlin Wall
2800 kg and 4 Trabis : one with money from over 75 countries, an original NVA (armee) Trabant Jeep, one
with signitares from Helmut Kohl, Corbaschow Michael,
Katharina Witt and so on. The fourth is a normal one.
I have also cameras from the Stasi.

So I serveral times visited Berlin to take pictures from the changes since the fall of the wall.

In my free time I am also busy with the computer.
As I wrote serveral articles in Super Trabi I made contact with 3 Berliner.

About my caracter they say I am very easy and to good
for this world.I like also a good glas of wine.
Perhaps because I am a bookkeeper everything has to be
done punctally ...
Sorry if my English isn't so good, German is better.
In the beginning I am rather a quiet person, but after
a while I am blewing open.
Now we are preparing an exhibiton about the Berlin Wall for beginning november 2013. Actually there is a photoexhtion in Ieper Delta Lloyd Bank (till the end of August 2012).


Don't make it difficult. Keep it simple.
Carpe Diem : 'Pluk de dag' take the day as it comes...
