I am a Dutch Photographer and Graphic Designer. With my characteristic clean and graphic style I capture the world around me. Whether travelling through less visited remote areas, popular tourist destinations or just a short journey from home, I’m drawn to the still moments and perfect compositions when shape, colour, light and a feeling come together to create that image, a little bit different than we usually see the world, and showing the aesthetic of the less appreciated of the world we live in and travel to.
After 10 years living and working in London, I’m now based in Rotterdam, although ideally I work (far) away from home. I’m featured in NEW Dutch Photography Talent 2018, a yearly publication and initiative from GUP Magazine, followed by a solo expo in BRIX Bar & Kitchen, Amsterdam.
