I am a Rotterdam (NL) based portrait and documentary photographer. 

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. 

My project 'Under the Same Sun' is supported by Stichting Stokroos and Mondriaan Fonds.

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