Projet Nudité

About me

My name is Victor van Dijk. In 1996, I received my MA in Cultural Anthropology at Utrecht University. For my study I lived two months in Coimbra and Ereira, Portugal (1993), and half a year in Salvador, Brazil (1995). My specialization is Latin-America, and Brazil in particular. In 1998/99, I did research for a documentary on Tibet and Ladakh. In 2002, I lived during a month in South-India, among other places in Bangalore, and Kodaikanal where I helped in setting up a centre named svajA, aimed at modern treatment on ancient principles of RSI, and stress-related ailments. I also maintained the website for the company. Kodaikanal is beautifully situated high up in the mountains of South-India, and worthwhile a visit. July 2005, I've did my bit in setting up a brand new naturist campsite in Limousin, France, Domaine des Monts de Bussy. I constructed the original website for the camping. It's really worthwhile paying a visit!

Update 2014

Meanwhile, it's 2014, 10 years after I've started putting up my website victorvandijk.nl. I have rounded off my Projet Nudité because I have found my answer. I kept the site online without doing any maintenance because I think it's worthwhile knowing and sharing its contents with a wider audience. On rare occasion, I am still being approached on the subject of nudity and shame, and this honours me.

My interests meanwhile have broadened. I have started delving into everything having to do with (professional) multimedia, merely out of years long built up curiosity, and because now I have to chance to study all the good stuff at Lynda.com. I don't have any personal interest with that company, but I am just being enthusiastic because it has very honest, transparent foundations, and — though nowadays being a commercial company as well — it's prime goal isn't profit, but education and the sharing of professional knowledge with a wider audience. The knowledge concerned involves anything having to do with creativity and technique, both hardware and software, as well as training in the business field.

Lynda.com is an 'online training library', as they call it. For a fixed, low tariff each month of $25 you can follow any of their courses online in the form of high quality video content, and if you're willing to pay $12.50 a month extra, you can also make unlimited use of their training materials. And mind you, those are not 'flimsy files / powerpoint presentations', but can be absolutely massive (Gigabytes!) when the subject is about video / photography! The majority of the teachers have decades long experience in their field, and some are even very famous, like Douglas Kirkland, for instance!

 

This is me (the big one, that is)!
