Works as a photo artist and freelance photographer/graphic designer. Studied photography at St Joost, Breda, Netherlands. Graduated 1993.
Most of my work is quiet, tactile and aesthetic and at the same time confrontational and intriguing. I zoom in on my subject, show details, (collective) memories and traces. With my work I try to make the unseen and the forgotten seen, I create attention for the still and serene world that seems far from us. I take a stand against the fleeting and individualistic time we live in now, in which often many things happen at the same time and lack genuine awareness for our surroundings and vicinity. The medium is often photography, but does not have to be, sometimes it is paper, thread, video, whatever serves the theme best. The viewer is questioned by the work about one’s own memories, perceptiveness and awareness, and at the same time invited to reflect.
