I travel to different countries in Europe to find abandoned old houses that still maintain the spirit of the people that once lived in them. There are often clues to be found about the former inhabitants, but the whole story and the reason of their departure remain open to interpretation. I prefer it that way.
A lot of these houses are timecapsules of a time many decades ago. One day they will be gone and replaced by other houses, but in the meantime we bear witness to these past lives while nature slowly reclaims their homes. I studied drawing, painting and illustration and only later took to photography. I approach photography much the same as my drawings and paintings: instinctively. I use digital as well as analog cameras.
In 2013 I was selected for the New Dutch Photography Talent book (by Gup Magazine).
