About
I am a social documentary photographer based in The Hague (b. 1992, Ascot, UK). My photography is driven by an openness, sincerity and curiosity to understand and connect with the other and the world around me. From these connections I like to tell honest and intimate stories that can evoke feelings of empathy and optimism in us all. Involvement and cooperation are essential in my process. I prefer to make work with my subjects, instead of about them. By telling stories that connect us to the world around us, I hope to open up perspectives and share worlds that might not otherwise be seen or heard.
