ABOUT

I am a 26 year old documentary and portrait photographer based in Rotterdam. 

In my work I am inspired by people who have a personal story to tell. Here, mutual ties, family and identity are important recurring themes. My photos are subtle and I try to hold your gaze. I explore the vulnerable positioning of the person portrayed, but also of myself as a photographer. Changes in life, growing up, processing emotions or relationships are precious subjects in my photography. 

Someone recently said to me: "You deal with human psychology through photography." I find the part in which people dare to open up and engage in a conversation very interesting and valuable. In addition, you can see so many things in a portrait that the viewer can identify with. Small shifts in body language, an uncertain gaze, or the strength that someone radiates.

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