This book is the result of a collaboration between Luc Rombouts (university carillonneur in Leuven) and myself.

This book tells the story of giving the Park Abbey of Leuven a new carillon. A remarkable cooperation between a Belgian and a German city, Leuven and Neuss, as well as the support of numerous other sponsors led the project to success. The new carillon was inaugurated on 11 November 2018, the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Since my early childhood I have been an enthusiastic hobby photographer.
I can still remember my first reflex camera, a Practica LLC with a Pancolar lens by Zeiss. This camera has accompanied me on many trips and other photographic adventures. Since then I had several other cameras. Today I mainly use digital full frame cameras.
Over the years I've made encounters with virtually all the genres of photography.
Photography with all its possibilities and facets has become a very important part of my life. I enjoy the creative process, from the generation of the photos to finishing and sharing them with others.
Already when taking a photo, high technical quality is crucial.
The ultimate goal is to create photos who speak. For achieving this, in my opinion technical perfection is a necessary, albeit not sufficient condition. Currently my photography workflow is fully digital. Using digital full frame cameras with, preferably, fixed focus lenses, and state of the art applications for finalizing images, I strive to find a convincing photographic way of expressing myself.
