The 9th of March 2013 at Barkala , a 8000 acre property in Central NSW near Coonabarabran , we celebrated the wedding of Johannes and Regina.
Their wedding was a fairytale mix of Australian country , German tradition and Medieval romantics set in the beautiful meadows and hills of Barkala.
This book is a humble souvenir made by Jacob the Photographer , a Dutch Australian photographer. Invited as guest he could not resist to take his small Fuji X10 with him.
This book is his gift to that wonderful couple.
Born in the Netherlands in '54 I always had a great love for Historic ships. Initially studied for mechanical engineer I worked on a few Amsterdam shipyards amongst others. Later I found more pleasure in photography and after a 4 year part-time study for photographer I opened my own photo studio in Baarn , a lovely town near Amsterdam. There my partner and I had great success with all types of photography. In the late 90's we migrated to Australia where we owned a huge rural property . Surrounded by splendid sub tropical nature we had a humble but rewarding live, we performed our arts and did 'meet' our selves. It was there where I designed the Batavia book in a little shed , printed and bound it. That was way before the on-demand printing industry took off. It gave me the opportunity to learn yet another couple of trades: Graphic design , printing , book binding, web design... . Maybe I should change my name to Jack ( of all trades ). I look forward to my next book to make !
