PHOTOGRAPHY, FOR ME, IS WRITING STORIES.
Ever since I was young, I was writing. Writing my own reality, my own world. I’d like to show you this world through images and words, but make you a part of it as well.
My staged photography with a dark and ominous atmosphere has a cinematic feel to it. Having been influenced by Hollywood and pop culture, I grew up with this distorted view about what life was supposed to be like. Growing up and figuring out that life isn’t a movie, threw me off and disappointed me a little. The disillusionment formed me and my work. I determined I should show imperfectness with real people, showing emotions we are not usually allowed to display or at the very least, aren’t usually shown in movies to have. My photography is mostly focused on women, having been underrepresented as the ‘main character’ of a story for too long.
I can be found in a small town called Volendam, half an hour away from Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
