Born in the Netherlands, I have lived and worked in Japan since 1982. I speak fluent Japanese and am completely familiar with both culture and customs of this country.

I work as a journalist and photographer for several daily newspapers and clients world wide. Organizations like Associated Press, EPA, The Times, Wired Magazine and Australia’s Herald Sun have carried my work and I have worked on TV and radio programs, for amongst others, the BBC and NHK. Over the years I have covered major news stories like the Kobe, Taiwan, India, Pakistan and China Earthquakes, the Tsunami Disaster of 2004 in Sri Lanka, Thailand and Aceh, Indonesia, and the train accident near Osaka in April 2005.

My photographs have been displayed at expositions in Japan, the UK, the Netherlands, Greece and Singapore.

In 2002, I launched JAPANESE STREETS, the world’s first English language fashion blog for Japanese street fashion. In 2010 I started MeijiShowa, a stock photo agency for old photos of Japan between the 1860s and 1930s.
