Artist Statement

More than a subject, I capture a sensation when I photograph.
I express desire and resignation, two contradicting needs. Longing for freedom and adventure on the one hand and residing in here and now on the other.

Photography enables me to be totally open for what is there, outside and inside of me. I create in an intuitive way and mainly make use of an analogue camera.


I was born in The Netherlands in 1984 and studied at the Photo Academy in Amsterdam where I graduaded in 2011.
My work was nominated for the Photo Academy Award in 2012 and has been published in the book New 2012 – the catalogue for new Dutch photography talent.
