I'm a writer and a photographer. I write poetry, short stories and novels. My textbureau ESOX Holland translates, writes and edits all sorts of texts in commission. 25 hours a week I'm an adviser, and policy secretary to the direction for the local administration of the city of Hellevoetsluis, Holland. My background is the Arts. I have an artsdegree from the Arts Academy of Arnhem Holland. I wrote columns about art for several Dutch magazines. I'm also an avid fly fisherman and I have written and edited for The Dutch Fly Fisherman, a glossy periodical about... flyfishing, as well as several others magazines. I was born on the island of Curaçao and spent my childhood years in the Caribean. Still longing...

    "Taco, visiting your photostream is always such a treat, not only for the beauty of your pictures, but also for the quality and skill you deliver into each and every image...... you never miss pleasing my eyes and my mind. One of the thing that I most admire, is that your photostream encompass an entire spectrum of subjects. Your passion for nature and photography is always inspiring without forgetting your great «sens de l'humour» and your willingness to help and share!

    Probably because we share the same passion for fly fishing and photography, I feel like I have known you forever and I am very proud of being your friend.

    Keep them coming................I am addicted! (LOL)

    Merci / Dank je wel / Thank you"

    "I think Taco was the second or third contact I had the good luck to become acquainted with when I first dipped my photographic pinky into the flickr ocean. I now have well over contacts. Maybe I've paddled in oh, maybe 5,000 photostreams this year so far. IMHO he's the best at capturing wildlife in it's natural habitat. He also takes many other sublime images, but this will just turn into an envious rant if I'm not careful, so I'll leave it at that...suffice to say that the best word I can think of to describe his photostream is STONKING!
    Also, he happens to possess the coolest moniker in all of flickrdom, imho - ESOX LUCIUS ROCKS!"

    "Some of the most expressive and beautiful photos on flickr, in my opinion, are here on Esox Lucius' site. The photos never fail to make me smile, or gasp in wonder.
    I am also in love with Foske, the beautiful Stabyhound whose photos light up her pages.
    Very wonderful flickr site."

    "the clarity, focus and light in his pictures with which he depicts the world betray a clear and focussed mind, gifted with insight, creativity and erudition ... so too his comments which are in a class, second to none!"

    "The more I see of Taco's photography, the more I am impressed. Touring through his photostream several factors that set his photos apart from the average become apparent, starting with his respect for and knowledge of nature. His education in art comes through in the beauty of his photos and the prose he often adds to his shots conveys his background as a writer (and his ready wit). Ask a question of him and you will receive clear and speedy answer. Beyond his photography, Taco has become a valued friend - and I bow to him as the master of the pun and double entendre!"
