I'm a documentary photographer, based in Rotterdam (The Netherlands).
During the Master's study Communication Science at Radboud University Nijmegen I became fascinated by the power of visual narrativity. After my final exam and working several years as a freelance photographer and writer, I started studying Photography (documentary) at the School of Fine Art and design | St.Joost in Breda. In 2012 I graduated. Since then I work on self initiated photo projects.
My work is published in Dutch newspapers as NRC Next and Volkskrant. In 2014 GUP-Guide to Unique Photography selected me as one of the New Dutch Photography Talents.
Beside my autonomous projects I'm a freelance teacher in Photography (independent and at Photo Academy Amsterdam) and I work commissioned for a variety of clients (e.g.: Ekoplaza, Gers! Magazine, NRC Handelsblad, PGGM, Stichting Vluchtelingenwerk Nederland,Volkskrant). For more information about my commissioned work, please visit my commercial website (in Dutch).
