Furthermore, Dirk Verwoerd was initiator of realising a book about the life and work of the famous Dutch architect Piet Blom. Dirk Verwoerd: ‘Architectural photography is something I grew very passionate about and it has become my specialism. It is not just the composition, but the combination with the light and atmosphere that is so challenging and that I find thrilling to capture. I also enjoy adding the finishing touch with professionally editing and refining the pictures’.
