Iris ten Holder



I finally decided on this image as it has the story, the tulips look transparent  and look more delicate than the winterlike background.

pic of Iris Ten Holder I am an editor by profession and worked for the House of Commons from 1966 until 1995. We have lived in Ottawa since 1960. Prior to 1960 we lived in Alberta, where we landed first upon our immigration from The Netherlands. Our children have now startedtheir own families.My interest in photography dates back to my high school years. I was intrigued by the photographs of one of my fellow students. I was fascinated by photo journalism and the photography in Life Magazine.

I have used the cameras that were commonly available. My first camera was a Voigtlander, which belonged to my parents. It was a pull-out camera, harmonica-wise, with a separately mounted viewfinder. Later I used 35 mm cameras of varying complexity or simplicity. I currently own a Pentax ESPIO 738 and two digital cameras. Some of my black and white photographs appeared in Canadian Camera Magazine last year in an article written by June Coxon.

Although I started with a very narrow focus, I now have quite a few interests. My main focus was ‘trees’ and they still feature frequently in my photographs. Other fascinations include ‘reflections’, ‘shadows’, ‘travel images’. My latest focus concerns photo compositions, of which my submission is an example.

At the moment I am in the process of cataloguing all my photographs, and then will organize them in portfolios.
