My specialities are portrait- and documentary photography.
I studied photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam from where I graduated in 1997. Ever since i’ve worked as freelance photographer for various constituents, such as the Dutch daily papers NRC Handelsblad, Trouw and many others.
Photobook ‘Boat People Of Amsterdam’. Ranging from the family that roamed around for many years until it finally found a berth to the man who as a student built a house on a ramshackle barge and who still lives in it without shower and lavatory.
At the moment I’m working on a documentary about traditional festivals in Europe which will result in a book and exhibition.
