Photography to Frank van Paridon means taking chance seriously.

Paridons' pictures are all made during travelling. His work pictures everyday life around the world. Photographs of ordinary moments that, each one of them, are unusually common. Photographs of people that live their lives; eat, drink, pray and celebration; their routines and their rituals. In the case of landscape and city photography Paridon lets light guide him in finding beauty.

 

His book NO PARTICULAR WAY TO GO is the result of 25 years of travelling around the world, a selection of pictures from 50 countries. The book reflects the idea that the way life is led, and the way the world is travelled, is to a large extent, a consequence of coincidences. 

Magical images are created because of ones coincidental presence at a certain place, on a certain day. The quality of the photographer is shown by his constant alertness and the artistic choices he makes.
