Graduated with honors (May 2019) from the Fotoacademie in Amsterdam and based in Hilversum, The Netherlands.
"I create my images based upon stories and memories, in which I try to visualize the bond between man, spirit and nature. I love to use the contrast between light and dark and the twilight zone between them.
In my latest project I portray the emotions of a generation forced to leave the former Dutch-Indies and a life so deeply rooted in their genes. But not only loss and sadness but also magic and animism. Animism is the belief that everything has a soul, not only people but also animals and non-living objects. Photographically I want to show a kind of beauty and vulnerability that has arisen from this loss."
