About
I am a social documentary photographer based in The Hague (b. 1992, Ascot, UK). My photography is driven by a constant urge to discover, understand and connect with new places and people I come across. From an open, sincere and optimistic perspective, I look for stories that help us (re-)connect to the world around us. These stories often focus on the basic, yet essential aspects of life that we tend to lose contact with in our modern society. Involvement and collaboration are key in my process. I prefer to make work with my subjects, instead of about them. As a photographer and storyteller, my goal is to share different perspectives and encourage new ways of seeing and connecting with the world we live in.
