“Drifting Home” by Bas Jan Ader

Drifting Home

Happy birthday to photographer and artist Bas Jan Ader, born on this day April 19, 1942 in Winschoten, Netherlands. 🎈

Ader had an adventurous background: his father once rode a bike from the Netherlands to Jerusalem, and his son’s adventuring spirit later took Jan Ader in a tiny boat across the Atlantic, where he was, unfortunately, lost at sea in 1975. His whereabouts are still a mystery.
