In my studio

my passion

Having had a passion for art since a young age, I pursued a study in History of Art at the University of Amsterdam and had a career as a designer. However, it was in photography that I found my true calling. I studied photography at the Photo Academy in Amsterdam, where I honed my skills and developed a unique approach to my craft. I became fascinated with the power of photography. Through my vibrant use of color and an honest, realistic style, I aim to capture the true essence of my subjects and their stories.

Driven by a deep desire to capture the complexities of the human experience, I started exploring social issues that are often overlooked or marginalized. This exploration has taken me to different parts of the world, where I document important social issues and create impactful and beautiful portraits. Over time, my work has been featured in various publications and exhibitions, earning critical acclaim and prestigious awards like the Zilveren Camera (2x), SO Awards an the LensCulture Portrait Awards

With my portraits, I want to celebrate diversity and foster empathy and understanding. Whether I am shedding light on the challenges faced by LGBTQ individuals in conservative societies, delving into the intricate dynamics of racism and exclusion, or capturing the human essence of those affected by discrimination, my goal is to provide a glimpse into our shared human experience.

Based in Amsterdam, I continue to push the boundaries of my art and create work that sparks conversations and drives social change. I firmly believe that photography has the power to shape our understanding of the world and that every image can contribute to a more compassionate society.

My photography has been exhibited in, amongst others, New York, Cologne, Tel Aviv, Eilat, Liverpool, Paris, London, Amsterdam and many other cities in The Netherlands and has been selected for exhibitions and festivals around the world.
