About
I am a social documentary photographer and storyteller, based in The Hague (b. 1992, Ascot, UK). My work is led by a constant curiosity and an urge to understand and connect with new people, communities and subcultures I come across. I look for universal feelings of sincerity, vulnerability and optimism to build bridges between different groups of people. Engagement and collaboration are key, providing the people I photograph a platform to tell their story and letting them actively participate in the process of the work. 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.
