About
I am a social documentary photographer and storyteller, based in The Hague (b. 1992, Ascot, UK). In my work I try to get a grip on the smaller, yet essential aspects of life that we tend to lose contact with in our current society. Whether it’s our relationship with nature, elderly people, or our sense of openness towards others, for me it’s important to tell stories that help us connect to the world around us. Engagement and collaboration are key, providing the people I photograph a platform and a voice. By telling stories that evoke a sense of humanness or commonality in us all, I hope to open up perspectives and share worlds that otherwise might not be seen or heard.
