Biography

I'm an autodidact and I make autonomous work. As a photographer I'm interested in people and the depiction of intimacy.

At the end of 2019 I exhibited my series ‘Wild is the wind’ in a chapel in Ubbergen. For this ongoing series, I photograph Dance Academy students, from up-close, who improvise in natural surroundings.

As a volunteer for Stichting Still, I portray terminally ill and deceased children with their parents.
