The internationally appreciated artist Ruud van de Wint (1942-2006) lived and worked in an inland dune area in Den Helder (The Netherlands) since 1980. Here, the landscape and his structures are deeply connected. For instance, the artist made use of the 29 WW II bunkers located on this spot. Van de Wint once wrote: "My words are my sculptures, my sculptures are my paintings, my paintings are my structures."

For a kite aerial photographer like me the structures of Van de Wint are interesting, for instance straight from above. The images are made with permission of the Van de WInt familiy and De Nollen foundation.

Taken early one morning during a Pentecost meeting with friends (and sheep). No more wind left, not even for the Triton kite.

Launching kite and camera (attached to the kite's line) near the spot where the Germans blew two holes in the IJsselmeer dyke on 17-04-1945, eighteen days before the end of World War II. Wieringermeer polder (visible in background) flooded within two days and forced desperate farmers and other inhabitants to leave their farms, land and other possessions.
In december 1945 the polder was dry again after dyke restoration and a lot of pumping. Leaving the dyke not as straight as he used to be.

The Afsluitdijk is a major landmark (or a watermark, if you will) in the Netherlands. The dike was completed in 1933 and leads you in 32 km from Den Oever in North Holland to the province Friesland.
It is a fundamental part of the larger Zuiderzee Works, damming off the Zuiderzee, a salt water inlet of the North Sea and turning it into a fresh water lake (the IJsselmeer).
