among the clouds
My soul dissolves
The child in me
Welcome on my website.
My name is En Eg and I'm an autonomous photographer based in the Netherlands.
I try to capture this dissolving feeling in my photographic images. The goal that man is happy is not included in the plan of creation. But a happy life actually exists. I have come to terms with myself by starting to take pictures for my weblog 'Family life' in 2007.
It appeals so much to my patience and concentration that 'the child in me awakens'. I belong to myself again. Much of the regained joy is in my work: tinkering, creating my own world .... The images are often diffuse in nature because how graspable is happiness? Happiness can not always be held, but again and again I'm looking for it. With the help of my daimons* like Ischa, Hans and Ellen I know the answer lies within me.
Feel free to look around, call or MAIL ME if you want to buy my work, join me for a photowalk (a walk is still possible), follow a lesson in creative mobile photography (currently this item has been canceled due to corona) or restore your old family photos by me.
Daimon is the Greek derivative for the term demon. In this sense the term "demon" means "replete with knowledge." The ancient Greeks thought there were good and bad demons called 'eudemons' and 'cacodemons.' The term 'daimon' means "divine power," "fate" or "god." Daimons, in Greek mythology, included deified heroes. They were considered intermediary spirits between men and the gods. Good daimons were considered to be guardian spirits, giving guidance and protection to the ones they watched over. Bad daimons led people astray. Socrates said he had a life-time daimon that always warned him of danger and bad judgment, but never directed his actions. He said his daimon was more accurate than omens of either watching the flights or reading the entrails of birds, which were two respected forms of divination of the time.
