About Ackermans

Guy Ackermans was born in Maastricht in 1958. During his forestry study at the then Hogeschool Wageningen (Agricultural College) he also took a professional photography course at the Fotovakschool in Apeldoorn. While a student he started working for the Hogeschoolblad and he still takes pictures for the Resource.

Ackermans loves to photograph the campus: "I find the Campus very attractive to walk around. The buildings are quite far apart and do not compete with each other. I think the two lawns are the backbone of the buildings, they bring peace and clarity to the campus."
