Photographs of de Jordaan in Amsterdam

In the last weekend of the Summer vacation, I was in Amsterdam for a workshop of travel photography. Travel photography is a difficult thing, since there are so much genres of photography within travel: landscape, nature, architecture, streetlife, portraits etc. 

And how do you catch the essence of a place, or make a photo of the usual touristplaces, but with an original spin on it? 

That Saturday, we walked around a certain neighbourhood in Amsterdam, called the Jordaan. This name comes from the French jardin, meaning garden. In the 17th century, a lot of French hugenots came to the Dutch Republic and settled in this area. There is a lot of green to be seen here and there is a lot of atmosphere. 

Most of these houses were built in the 17th century, and you can see how many of them are leaning in different directions. 

So here are a few photographs of De Jordaan in Amsterdam.
