As a photographer my work is shaped by the place where I grew up, a place between the city and the Dutch countryside. Even though I learned to understand both sides, neither of the places make me feel completely at home. There is a big gap between the pace of time and values of people in these different areas, and are almost opposite to each other.
This polarisation often leads to contradictions in perception which I question in my work. For instance, the oblivion of age-old crafts, slow process on local produce in a fast paced world, valuing quality instead of mass production.While this origin lays closer to home than people assume. I visualise truthful stories with emphasis on what matters; a sustainable process while researching and exploring my opinionated voice in this. The stories have a clean, colourful and cinematographic atmosphere, where nature and the modern world meet.
