I was born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and I live in The Hague not far from a popular beach and boulevard. It is there that I shoot most often: enjoying the diversity and unpredictability of day trippers. With just one camera and lens (Leica Q) I shoot close to people and because I mostly use flash People do notice me while shooting. But I don't mind... I like to connect to people and hear their stories.
In 2017 I started my long-term project 'Pier to Pier' which is about the 2.5 km of beach and boulevard in Scheveningen between the two main Piers. In 2018 I published my first photobook under that name and my first solo exhibition on the Pier, which was outside for 6 months, has been visited by more than 200,000 people.
This year my work is being exhibited by Museum Panorama Mesdag in The Hague in an exhibition with three other photographers under the title 'Candid'.
