My passion for photography originated in Gurgaon (India), where I have lived for 4 years (2010-2014). I was fascinated by the rapid growth and the modern world that was created, from what was not long ago, a rural area. There was a big contrast between the modern buildings, where the rich and middle class live and work, and the slums, where the workers live, who work on new constructions. The visualization of this contrast has resulted in a photographic book 'Lines of Gurgaon - Portrait of a City'. Together with my friend an professional photographer Marianne van Loo have we self-published a limited edition book (500 copies) in May 2013. This has resulted in an exhibition 'Aravallis - from hills to apartments' hosted by Alliance Francaise the Delhi (March 2015). To fulfill my new born passion for photography, I have started a three year study Photographic Design at the University of Applied Photography (Fotovakschool) in the Netherlands. In July 2017, I have finished my study.
