"MY VT photo's being used by ....." Personal Page by pieter_jan_v

The Dutch TV program Kanniewaarzijn

I got a message by new member Kanniewaarzijn with the request to use one of my Hengelo pictures Cradle for the Century by Janis Karlovs.

I had to search for the original picture I made in 2005, but I found it in my vault and that one was used on March 22, 2013 as a background on a subject about waste of money on public art.

The original idea behind the project was that Janis Karlovs would transform an almost dead tree into a piece of art. Unfortunally city workers chopped the tree which started the wood rot process.
The chopped tree was transformed into a piece of art, but as it was seperated from its roots, a new base had to be made at the cost of Euro 60,000. And that lasted some 2 years, because due to the rot, the tree remains fell apart.

Copyright infringement

Some of my hometown Hengelo are very in demand. I have seen my intro picture being used without permission over and over again.
Also my picture of the Hengelo train station was robbed.
