I am a social documentary and portrait photographer based in The Hague (b. 1992).
My work is led by a constant curiosity, optimism and an urge to understand and connect with new people, communities and subcultures I come across. Engagement and collaboration are key, providing the people I photograph a platform to tell their story and actively involving them in the process of the work. I see the presentation and distribution of my work as a crucial element, as it functions as the catalysator for connections between one another. Personally, I believe photography can be used in powerful ways to encourage engagement and understanding between different people, by telling stories that we can all relate to and appeal to a sense of humanness in us all.
