This year I got the chance to photograph for the daily paper at Oerol. A yearly art and theater festival at the Island Terschelling. There I met Piet. With his age of 98 he is the oldest islander of Terschelling.

He used to worked as a carpenter. And was crazy about stairs. In a tiny red notebook he shows us his perfect archived stairs he designed.

After some chitchat he shows us his shed with tools. In the mean while I take portraits of him in front of his shed, in his garden and at his house doorstep.

When he reaches the age of 100 he says will throw a party. Lets hope it is during Oerol 2021 because I really would like to celabrate that with him.

Some people stay in your heart from the moment you meet them.
