The Dutch are a nation restrained in their emotions, practical and hardworking. They like to say that they have created the Netherlands by themselves, and it can be easily seen that they care much about their land. For a country of high welfare they know well how to enjoy free time and – in comparison of the other European nations – are a very relaxed society. They love their cows and their small country, but for all they love their children for whom Holland is a very friendly country.
Scenes from daily and unusual days in the life of the Dutch have been immortalized in photos by John Wijntjes who is passionate about photography since childhood. He earned money for his first camera as a teenager, working hard at the shipyard in Pernis, and then he studied photography in the Photo Academy in Apeldoorn. He is currently working for newspapers in the Krimpenerwaard. His photographies can be seen on his web siteHis photographs can be seen on the website: www.wijntjesfotografie.nl.
