Why didn’t Johannes Vermeer and Pieter de Hooch paint wintry Delft cityscapes? This book does not answer that question, but it does make you feel the lack of it a bit.

Delft in Winterlight is a photobook with images of the city of Delft during wintertime.

Roel de Oude (1944) worked as a still photographer for the documentary film Vermeer: ​​Master of the Light, released (2001) by the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, USA. He is co-photographer of the book View of Delft (Scriptum Publishers Schiedam, 2003). In the early 1970s, De Oude took several years of photography lessons at the Vrije Academie ‘Psychopolis’ in The Hague, with teacher Frans Zwartjes.

In 2018 he founded the Ortus Photo Archives Foundation (SOFA), committed to preserving and exploiting photo archives of leisure photographers, curated the exhibitions Paris, je t’aime (2019) and Belgium – Impressions (2021) organized by SOFA and was the author of the brochures published at the exhibition.
