I’m a Dutch photographer based in Amsterdam but at home on the road, where I uncover beauty in ordinary situations while witnessing the continuous change of the natural and man-made landscapes surrounding us. I bought my first camera to assist a friend in her endeavors to become a photographer, and quickly decided to capture the world on my own journeys.
With a focus on community and connection, I immerse myself in communities that face challenges when it comes to protecting their roots and culture in a time of rapid social and environmental change. I thrive by traveling to outer reaches concentrating on sustainable experiences that benefit local and indigenous communities directly.
In my editorial and commercial work, I move between portrait and landscape, blending everyday life experiences with purpose driven creative ideas to help make this world a better and more exciting place.
I’ll travel everywhere (everywhere!) for commissioned projects.
