Lately I have been experimenting with moving double exposures/collages. During the exhibition at Artzaanstad I made portraits of a number of visitors, some of whom I used for the double exposures. Now I am working on applying this to portrait photos of visitors to the atelierroute in Wormer. I’ll keep experimenting with these. I’ll probably take more photo’s during some of my other exhibitions, if you want a free portrait photo or to potentially be apart of the series, sign up to my news letter and I’ll let you know what exhibition I will be shooting at.
I will be posting the video’s on my instagram in the meantime.
The Zaanse Rainbow Parade
ZaanPride, on June 10, I joined the parade, it was busy and hot. A rough and exhausting. Also very rewarding, many enthusiastic people who were active to see what ZaanPride and the Zaanse Regenboog stand for. Here a few photos from that day here. More at: @daviddelange48

Through the eyes of Armen Melkonian
This year the ZaanPride was held for the first time in the Zaanstreek. I wanted to participate as a photographer and I had the opportunity to personally follow Ambassador Armen before and during the trip. Armen has fled Syria because of the war and because of his sexuality. I became acquainted with him and photographed him the first time in the library where he spoke at the opening of the Pride. During the Rainbowparade on Saturday, he was at the forefront as ambassador. Dagblad Zaanstreek also showed interest and published a report viewed from Armen. Including my photo’s. The Parade was exactly like the motto: OUT LOUD PROUD!!
Days of Self-Portraits
28-01-2019 I decided to commit to a 1000 days of self-portraits series.
I finished the series 23-10-2021.
It took me 142,86 weeks or 32,87 months or 2,74 years. It was a long journey that changed me as a person and photographer in many ways. I learned lots of things, gained so many experiences and occasionally lost parts of my sanity.
During this series I realised you can display a human in 1000’s of different ways.
Three years later, will I expose this work, will I release a book? Stay tuned…
For now the series is visible on my Instagram
Ride for Rights
In 2021 I documented Amnesty Internatiol action: Ride for Rights. A large group of motorcyclists gathered at the Westergasfabriek, from there they toured the city adorned in rainbow colours. With this they drew attention for LGBTQ+ rights in Poland.

End of an Era
Brokking was an old factory for fodder, located next to the channel de Zaan in Wormerveer. The building from 1930 was being demolished to make way for new houses. The demolishing was an incredibly spectaculair sight. A landmark of the region since the days of my grandparents, now a pile of rubble resembling a war zone.
I documented a part of history for my region the Zaanstreek.
MOVING A HOSPITAL
The move of the Zaans Medisch Centrum
In 2014 the building of a new hospital started, right next to the old building. In januari 2017 they started the process, the move was planned meticulously. To move the patients, they build a tunnel from one place to the other. It was an impressive collective effort to behold.
