Putmolen ~ Episode 1 “Crystal Ball”


In the Aarlanderveen polders around Alphen in Holland, here Mill #4 of the Gang of Four Mills – also known as the Putmolen (Pit mill).
This Gang of four mills (dutch : Molenviergang) is working together to upload the polder water around the Aarlanderveen village in 4 steps – by stepped drainage via basins – all together almost 5 meters , 16 feet, higher into the Old Rhine river.
This Putmolen mill (with millers Rita and Johan Slingerland) drains the lowest part of the polder, the so-called Put (pit), where peat was still extracted when this mill was build in 1801 , after the higher part of the polder had already been milled dry. Filmed using the iPhone X on the dutch national mill day 2018.

Tin Can Pinhole Photo


Workshop pinhole photography at SKVR BeeldFabriek (SKVR ImageFactory) September 11, 2011 in Rotterdam, Holland. The ’24 hour culture’ event of Rotterdam (’24 uur cultuur’).
Turn a can into a Camera Obscura and make your own pinhole photo , and print it in a real dark room.
A tin can is used , punched with a pinhole , that has been painted black inside and loaded with photographic paper.
The pinhole is covered with tape , that is removed some 10-15 seconds for exposure of the film when taking the picture.
Your cameraman is taking his pinhole photo of the nearby Rotterdam Erasmus bridge.
The Dutch Youth Accordion Orchestra ( NJAO , MD Marc Belder ) played nearby that day the Sonatina Piccola (Jan Masséus). A second camera (Sony TX7) was used for the documentary.
