TRAVELS THROUGH EUROPE
ASIGNMENTS ARE VERY WELCOME
I like to visit magical places.
I become fascinated by history, an event, person or story.
And I get to work. Commissioned or as my own project.
Many books have been written about the life and art of the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh. In my digital, interactive book series “Seeing through the eyes of Vincent van Gogh”. As a compiler I choose a different approach: a visual one. As a photographer, documentary producer and author I traveled through Belgium and France, among others, and took detailed photographs of the places
Vincent stayed, lived, painted and died. I placed the first three parts (of five) of this special book project about my fascination for Vincent van Gogh in Apple’s iBooks Store. They can be found under ‘Vijlbrief Multimedia Books’, where you will find about 30 books I created. Custom articles are available for magazines: print and online.
LITHO VAN GOGH REPRINTED AFTER 130 YEARS!
Vincent van Gogh made a lithograph prior to the final version of his painting ‘The Potato Eaters’, which would become his first real masterpiece. In the context of the exhibition “Vincent van Gogh as a graphic artist”, the Nederlands Steendrukmuseum has reprinted the lithograph.
As a producer I realized a DVD of this subject in a luxury gift folder. All actions were meticulously redone. The lithograph was presented in a limited edition. Including the Dutch and English DVD about the story behind the history of this lithograph.
ARTIST LIFE IN PAINTING THEMES
I recently published part 15 of the digital, interactive multimedia book series about the painting techniques and oeuvre of Poen de Wijs (1948-2014). Along with Poen de Wijs, the Dutch painter of Realism of the 20th century, I realized the first 12 parts.
Our world is full of beauty and contains magical places. Informing and visualizing special places on this earth: that is why John Vijlbrief, photographer and author, started a varied series of ‘Road Trips’ digital multimedia books in 2018. Interactive books, with droneflight video clips in a number of editions.
SEE & EXPERIENCE
Vijlbrief’s goal is to explore European countries. The series is already starting to grow! Take a look at Apple’s iBooks Store under ‘Vijlbrief Multimedia Books’. Customized articles are available for magazines: print and online.
