My biggest hobby are people. I enjoy to observe them, to meet them, to talk to them, they are just amazing creatures.
My drive to tell stories takes me back to my childhood when my grandfather showed me his photo work. Already back then I was fascinated by the images and the stories he got to tell about them. I come from a strong-minded family where we don’t avoid discussions about society. Concerned about injustice and a need to fight against it inspires every story I tell.
At a certain point, when I was 15 years old I made the decision to study photography. Over the years I developed a drive to tell stories. A personal story, a biographic story or an expository story.
Intuition and pleasure are behind every project I make. Always chasing people and interested mostly in portrait photography, my work is about establishing relationships through the camera and share real stories. Exclusivity, the role of women in society, coming of age and exploitation in the beauty industry are my main topics. As long-term projects, I am following my brother who is in his puberty and my father who has an eating disorder. Besides that, I just concluded (as for now) a project about the hair-extension industry between The Netherlands and India where I’ve explored exploitation through a journalistic approach.
