About Anton Hazewinkel
53 years old - Born on January 16, 1961
First:: a big "thank you!" for your visit.
I usually do not reply to comments on my photos because I feel silly saying "thank you" for every comment, but I appreciate all of them and they motivate me to make more and better photos.
I always try to respond to questions regarding the context or content of photos. As most of my photos are about China, a country that more and more people are interested in, it gives me pleasure to share my views, with images and text, on China. Feel free to ask via comments or PM!
I'm Dutch and I am living in Beijing since 2005. I´m trying to capture daily life in (mainly) Beijing and share it with everyone who is interested. I always upload too many pictures and after a while I will delete or hide (make private) about 50% of them because I don't like them anymore. Sorry if you favorited one of those ...
My website, updated irregularly with what I think is the best selection of my work: antonhazewinkel.com
