This will be his first solo exhibition. It will be opened at 10:30 am by Mr. Henri Pieters Kwiers, former 'Akademia di Arte' photography teacher of Willem de Bode back in the 1980's. Willem de Bode was born in Wassenaar, The Netherlands and has been living in Curacao for the past 33 years. The choice of black and white photography is a very personal one for Willem de Bode. He finds that the essence of what is being photographed remains pure, without the distraction of color. Contrasts, textures and patterns become more important and as a result one sees things in a new light. Come by and experience Curaçao's landscapes and architecture in silence and serenity... without color.
