ABOUT

I am a  27 year old documentary and portrait photographer from the Netherlands currently traveling through Australia working on a photo project. In September my journey was supposed to continue to other countries in the world, such as Japan, Indonesia, North and South-America.(Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 my project can only continue if borders will open and if it's safe to travel again).

My work is related to understanding the subjects life story and their environment. Changes in life, processing emotions or relationships are important recurring themes. I try to explore the positioning of the person portrayed, but also of myself as a photographer.  I always choose to shoot with analogue film during my projects.

Feel free to contact me if you have questions or want to collaborate.
