about

I am a Dutch photographer based in Germany, holding a BA in Journalism. I developed my photographic skills at a private photographic school in Amsterdam (Fotovakschool). Since 2009 my work concentrates on narrative contemporary themes in which I combine scientific facts with documentation of historical and personal stories. My work has been shown in exhibitions throughout Germany. In 2014 I received the Culture Award for Photography of the Bavarian Oberpfalz region.

Through my photoseries I am searching for answers to the essential questions of life. I visualise facts and figures from physical law, astronomic and mathematical science that give us information about our material existence. I draw connections between topics, such as the rotation of the earth, the collapse of stars to black holes and the origin of the carbon-atoms in our bodies. From man to ashes, to dust, to earth - what if everything is connected in a universal, comprehensive plan? I look for evidence, for subtile clues, hints, facts or even secret formulas within reality to find an indication that it all makes sense.
