A fountain of inspiration, knowledge & interpretation to those who see more than meets the eye. As we say in Spain "Pa echarle de comer aparte" "Eating aside". His comments are full of poetry & unusual instant perception. Long life my friend. I expect you go back early!

Hndrk is one of the most creative people I've met on Flickr. His images are outstanding but the words that go along with them are even better. I always look forward to his interpretation of my own shots too. A wonderful contact on Flickr! I'm a big fan.

-hndrk- is, simply, one of the most fascinating photographers I have ever run across on flickr. He combines words and images in a way that few others do. Anecdotes and observations meld with images filtered through a very human mind to form a creative body of work that is both accessible and amazing. Hendrik’s careful and incisive observations rove over genres, break ‘rules’ and ask questions few others even notice need asking. An exploration of his images and words should be required for all who would ‘work’ in digital imagery. He is a catalyst, always generating discussion and conversation among both his fiercely loyal following and those he is meeting for the first time. Those of us who are lucky enough to have him as a contact know that he follows us carefully and intelligently, offering advice, an occasional critique and a constant stream of support – he is the perfect ‘contact’. I am a better photographer for having known him; I am a better digital citizen for having known him. I am proud to count him as my friend. Do yourself a favour and explore his stream – you won’t be disappointed.

I met Hendrik through his photo "awakenings" (http://www.flickr.com/photos/hndrk/3621725433/), very green and very beautiful... and as you do at least as I do, I flickrd through his stream. It was a "hold on, I stumbled across something here" moment. Within a few clicks my favourites page looked like his portfolio! His best set? "Explored", oh no hold on: "abstract" or maybe "facing art"? I really couldn't say. One thing is for absolute certain: expect the unexpected! You will be surprised, smile or be thoughtful. Enjoy his photostream! M
