Hi, I'm Berend, born in The Hague but I live in Maassluis since 1969. Previous I only made some snapshots during holidays. In 2007 I bought a digital SLR and started to make pictures as a hobby and not only during holidays. Since 2009 I try to photograph birds, it's like chasing but the birds stays alive. I've uploaded most of my photos in chronological order, so you can make the journey/hike with me. Pictures of my holidays are in labels starting with an asterix (*). I hope you like my pictures and hope to get constructive comments as I have much to learn. PLEASE NO INVITATIONS FOR GROUPS!!! Greetings from the Netherlands.

Looking again at this photo, I'm wondering if Betty's parents are the same George Bako and Rose Buana whom I knew in the 1980s and '90s (people do often change their names).

Dear Mr Stehbens

I'm very excited to see your photos from Dingodingo in east Kwara'ae, as I stayed there several times from forty years ago and your friends there no doubt include some of the people I knew then but have mostly lost touch with in recent years.

At the moment I am in the final stages of writing a pictorial history of Malaita, which includes some of my own photos as well as many others from around the island, from the 1890s to the present. I would love to be able to include a few of your photos in the final chapter, which ends with a series of snapshots from the last ten years. Pictures of Dingodingo and Na'oasi and of one or two of the people there would make a marvellous retrospective conclusion to the book.

The book is to be published by the British Museum, where I work, and its purpose is to return some of Malaita's history to its people, as well as to show the island to the world. I would be pleased to send you pdf copies of the drafts to show what I am trying to achieve.

Perhaps you could contact me on either or both of my e-mail addresses:

I look forward to hearing from you,


Ben Burt
