profile & bio
I am a documentary photographer and my work exits of photographic series. Through a personal relationship with the subject I address universal, social and cultural themes. I use photography as a way to make contact with people, to question the world and gain a grip on our fast paced everyday ‘reality’. I use photographs as a string of images and I like to combine several series together in publications and installations.
Currently I am working on the project Delfshaven's Finest.
I graduated in 2013 from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague with the project
She Comes in Colors which became a book.
1988, born in Velp, the Netherlands.
I currently live and work in Rotterdam, The Netherlands
