about

Ever since I was young, I’ve been writing. Writing my own reality, my own worlds. I would like to show you these worlds through images, and make you a part of it as well.

My (staged) portrait photography has a cinematic character. I have been influenced by Hollywood and pop culture, which is a big part of my imagery. I have always been drawn to TV shows and movies and entertainment, especially stories built around female leads. I bring some of the Hollywood spirit into my art, without losing sight of my Dutch roots. These two very different worlds are combined in my photography. The stories are fictional, but they are honest. My goal is bringing a little bit of Hollywood to the Netherlands, and vice versa.

I’m currently based out of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Please feel free to reach out, I’d love to connect!
