About the Photographer >

‘L.J.A.D. Creyghton is a famous Dutch landscape photographer with a long track record. At dusk or at dawn, when the light paints the landscape, one can find him on ridges, in the middle of meadows or along streams and forest edges. His ‘classic’ pictures show us not only the beauty of the landscape, but also the elusiveness and it’s richness. They force us exactly where to look and to take time. The photographer tries to get closer to the genius loci of places and shows that his quest means waiting, listening and very good observation.’ Margriet Kemper / Pels & Kemper Publishers ‘s-Hertogenbosch

‘Creyghton is the master of the ‘slow picture.’ Gerrit v/d Hoven / Brabants Dagblad

‘Not all Creyghton’s landscapes are so pure and innocent as they initially seem.’ Pim Milo / Credits, Amsterdam

‘What a unparalleled beauty! For me Creyghton made the best book on Dutch landscape.’ Laurens Reitsma / / Holland Album

About the Author >

‘In his book Ossensia, Serge van Duijnhoven gives voice to a motley crowd of libertines, knife-fighters, nomads, ragmen, relatives, heroes and outcasts. Robust Brabant characters in the memory and imagination of the writer, but sometimes also in the memory of the Maasland where they permanently acquired a place.’ Wouter ter Haar / Brabants Dagblad

‘An interesting writer.’ Alfred Kossman / Rotterdams Dagblad

‘Serge van Duijnhoven is a storyteller who’s striking manner exhibits his love for small, local and simultaneously meaningful detail.’ Gerrit Komrij in Tot diep in het donker
