New on the homepage: A map with location pins from all the places where I rephotographed Kurt Hielscher's photos till now. The map is also another form of navigation of the website and will be updated when I release a new subpage on the website. When you click on a location pin the link to the specific subpage will pop-up. I think it is already quite impressive to see all the places with the pins on the map.

Last week I've been to Rome with my family. Ofcourse we tried to visit the Basilica di San Pietro too, but the enormous queue avoided us to wait and get in. Instead we decided to discover more of the city, but not before I made this, ànd some other shots on the square. Here Kim, standing in the footsteps of Kurt Hielscher. Check the result on the Rome subpage on the website,  Facebook (later) or re.photos.

Today, exactly 75 years ago, on July 10th, 1948, Kurt Hielscher died. Now, I finally updated his biography on the website a little bit, but I am definitely not ready with it and I am still eager to keep digging. Please, let me know if you find a mistake or have something to add. For now I think it gives an interesting insight in who he was and how he might have changed from an adventurer/traveler/photographer/lecturer to a careerphotographer, with a dark side in the end.

New reprinted edition of Kurt Hielscher's Romania edition by IPG Book Distribution

Originally published in 1933, Romania by Kurt Hielscher is an astonishing volume of photographs depicting the life of Romanian people in the interwar era. In 1931 he was invited by the Romanian government to visit the country. "As time went on," he said "every day, every week I loved the country more." It was a love that grew throughout 1931 and 1932 and resulted in over 5000 photographs of which 304 were finally selected for this album. Unfortunately in 1944, an Allied bombing destroyed his life's work after hitting his workshop in Poland. He lost over 40,000 photographs and negatives. This photo album is a recreation of Hielscher's work and brings an homage to the love and appreciation he showed for Romania. Featuring over 300 black and white and sepia photographs, a colorized cover, a preface from Octavian Goga, and an introduction by Ernest H. Latham, Jr., it's a one-of-a-kind collection for anyone interested in the history of Romania.

Due to the pandemic I am currently not travelling abroad. A trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina in March 2020 had to be cancelled, unfortunately. So I bought myself a 1928 photobook of my own country, The Netherlands, to do something in the meantime, not by the hand of Kurt Hielscher, but with work from various photographers. I called this project "Holland 1928-now"
