After having the www.davedeleeuw.com domain for 4 years, I finally grew up and decided I should do something with it. Although I love to share my work on fotolog, facebook and myspace, this site gives me the opportunity to show my work independently. And I guess, somehow, that this feels kind of important to me.
I decided to share a selection of my work from the past, that I feel shows the base for where I am now and above all what lies ahead. The site is constantly updated with upcomming events and new work on the front page so check it out once in a while for updates. Older posts move to the next pages or can be searched and found in the archives in the upper right menu. Here you can also check a short bio (about), my resume (CV) and feel free to ask questions or leave a comment using the contact button. To close, just click the button again. If you’re lost or the page looks funky and you don’t like it anymore you can always use the home button to get back to the front page. Feel free to share the site using your favourite social network. More options will be available in the future. Just to let you know.

I would like to thank Kim, Sake and Job Pereboom from studio Konstruktief for this beautiful website.
