In my autonomous work I set out to explore my own reality. I am searching for a connection with my subconscious mind. The medium of photography helps me on my journey inward. It is a way of visualizing my inner thoughts and emotions. Purely instinctive. I try to create several layers of emotion by using light and experimenting with both analogue and digital techniques. Through this combination, a new world is created in which everything is possible. My own poetic visual world, that can evoke stories in the imagination of the viewer.
In June 2020, I graduated in Photographic Design from the Dutch Academy of Image Creation with my project Why? ‘That’s How It Ought To Be’. However, I have been a photographer for a long time. In the nineties I started travelling more outside of Europe, and that’s when I started with photography. Analogue. Since then, analogue photography has kept a hold on me. It enables me to create the atmosphere I am looking for. Often a poetic one. At the moment, I use both analogue and digital techniques or a combination of both. I am a member of Collectief Brabant, a collective of photographers and artists. In October 2020, I was selected as one of the 100 talents for GUP New 2021.
