Rinus de Graaff was born on September 26th, 1936 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. From a young age he had always been interested in photography, and he started taking pictures as soon as he got his first camera, an "Agfa Clack".
In 1959 Rinus moved to Aruba to work for the Aruba Drukkerij NV and he still lives here to this day. He bought a better camera and started developing and printing his own pictures in black-and-white.
After some years he joined the Aruba Camera Club. Every month the members would take pictures of nature, architecture, the sea or other subjects and would discuss their works during their monthly meetings. They also organized expositions to exhibit their work.
For many years he contributed a lot of his photographs to Skol i Komunidat, the periodical of SIMAR and would take passport photographs, which he would develop and print himself (36 pictures on a rol), of the students of Colegio Arubano.
Besides his black-and-white photographs he started taking slides of nature and his vacations. As soon as the digital age made it's introduction on Aruba he bought a digital camera and would take many pictures during his walks in the Aruban cunucu together with a friend.
In over 50 years Rinus took thousands of pictures all around Aruba.
