In these extraordinary times, we all dearly miss the Wageningen Campus. Browse the beautiful book ‘Light on Campus’ for a trip down memory lane. Photographer António Valente, also IT specialist at Wageningen University & Research, takes you to the most beautiful places on campus.

António Valente is photographer and works at WUR's IT Customer Services. His photos show the great diversity in buildings, statues and daily motions on the campus, in all seasons and at any moment of the day. The book is published in cooperation with the University Fund Wageningen.

Photography is my passion. I'm always hunting light. Always looking for situations with special lighting conditions and unusual shapes. My camera is an extension of myself.
